Correct... he is not just a damn fine inside LB... he is the heart, the soul and the brains of the Defense.

Sure it is. We can't just pay him more than anyone in the league, can we?

No. He should not.

You are absolutely right.

Now, to answer TWSS's question ...

My personal limit would be in the range of 15 M for 3 years. I think what we owe Fletch is letting him call the shots. By that I mean ask him what he wants to do. The logical thing to me is to let him and his agent test the waters, see what he can get, and then see what it takes to keep him here. That might end up with a top offer elsewhere of 5 M for 2 years with 4 M guaranteed or who knows from a perrenial playoff team resulting in us needing to offer 10 M for 3 years with 6 M guaranteed. These are random numbers but this is how I would proceed with the limit I stated at the beginning.
