Get him to reduce to an amount akin to Henne/Cassel which is what he could currently hope for and increase his odds to get more next year.

Not saying that is what they should do but I think there is leverage/incentive to work with.

Good luck with that. His other option is to stand firm, get his guaranteed money as a starter or backup for the Texans. Or be cut, get his guaranteed money and test free agency where he will most likely find a starting role with a good size signing bonus from a QB hungry team.
