I think barring injury it is far more likely you see the last year of his deal redone in an extension through him being 37 or so.
How many non-problem child 1500 yd WRs do you see getting released or traded? Correct me if I am wrong, but I think the answer is none.
AJ has restructured his contract so many times I doubt there is a monetary advantage to releasing or trading AJ. I look at it this way, AJ would be a great advantage to a new QB in much the same way Reggie Wayne was to Andrew Luck.
