    How big a contract do you think he will command this offseason?

    No idea. He was scheduled to make $6.5 million for 2013 and he is turning 35 years old in May.

    If he can play ILB it'd free up a draft spot. I don't think he'll command a REAL big contract likely 2-3 million per year at this point in his career.

    Supposedly the base salary he turned down was approx. $4.6 Mill (70% of $6.57 Million) plus incentives to get back the 30% reduction.
