    Or just resign him...like right away...
    Ding ding ding!

    What would Shield's motivation to do that be? just so he can give you a discount in exchange for years he would probably be health through, given his history?

    It would be worth attempting to do, no? Obviously it takes two sides, but my point was, we shouldn't trade for him without trying hard to keep him longer than 2 years...
