Yeah he showed signs of slowing down last year, only made the 2nd all pro team... 2-3 years, you wouldn't want him? I know you are all aboard the bring back Hankins boat but you are crazy if you think Calais wouldn't be a HUGE upgrade over Hankins for just SLIGHLTY more (maybe 2-4 million more per year)... Don't kill my dream Big Blue'56, let me live a little.
I wouldn't mind him here,
