The Weagles did offer him 3 years, so that’s the reason for the length of contract. Dollars wouldn’t have been a big deal, he’s probably on about $300k.
I always stated that he was the ‘in-betweener’ we needed for the period of time after Jobe retired & before our young midfield matured enough to cover for him.
Next season he will still be handy & purely back up if he stays any longer after 2019. Its the old Goddard rule, someone has got to push him out of the side, maybe Laverde will be that player, who knows.
