Well if it true they have not approached him how do they know how much he wants?
Kinda what we did with him last year only a bit more complex . Last year was his "prove it deal" he settled for after he found a cold market. He proved it, but how much of that was scheme and a dominant front seven? That's the gamble you take when letting players establish market value. It's a good process to take though. Hurney didn't take that stance (see Godfrey extension).
