''Hopefully, when I start off 9-0, they'll bring me another contract,'' he said. Burnett will likely get $10 million per year as a free agent should he make it through this season healthy. He remains a big injury risk, of course, but we'd certainly take him over Eric Milton or Jaret Wright for the next three years.
I think they will make a move to keep him since there is a stadium deal in place and the $21 million seems like a good deal to me.
