What a dumb move. Why wouldn't he sign a 1 year contract and then choose where he can go next summer for the same amount of money?
Now he'll likely be stuck in Nashville.
It only proves that he doesn't mind the idea of being in Nashville. Either that - or he has some inside knowledge that they CANT sign him. But barring that - he likes it enough in Nashville to stay there. So everyone here thinking he wanted out so bad was just wrong...he didn't.
