He may not want to leave them, but he hasn't signed with them yet either. This is more about money than staying in Baltimore. He thinks he's worth more than he is at this stage in his career, and if he keeps insisting on 7 million, it's going to backfire on him something drastic. If I'm Rick, I'd bump the offer to 5 mil, but no more than that. If he keeps taking his time, I'd pull it and look elsewhere. No one has any time for this.
