At the end of the day, the player is still the client.
It wouldn't be a question if Barwin had a big year, but he didn't & he knows it. He said that he's open to signing a one year deal & that would be so his agent can maximize his next contract. Whatever he'll be offered in FA he would have to believe it would have been more if he had a double digit sack year.
It's highly unlikely that another team would even offer him a one year deal. If he thinks that is best for him, & if I were his agent I would tell him it is, then that's what he's going to be looking for.
