If this was a running back tailing off or a WR2 then I'd agree but this is the defensive captain, someone dedicated to the team that players look up to.
Being cheap with players like that is counter productive.
And frankly they need him motivated this year and back next year. They have nobody coming through.
Pretty sure if we don’t extend a 30+ year old Dline player coming off a serious injury that was non-existent in his 4 appearances last year that he will still be motivated to earn another contract else where or simply doesn’t have IT anymore. Fading into a Juston Houston of the Colts role in future years.
