this is more feasible:

Jackson: 2 years, $8 million
Splitter will most likely get offered $8-10 million a year for around 3-4 years in an offer sheet and he'll take it. no way SA keeps him.
if anyone thinks Splitter is a "for sure lock", then Aron Baynes must not exist. he's signed cheap for the next 1-2 years for the minimum. also, the "he's new" or "he hasn't proven himself yet", he'll probably do the same thing Splitter is doing and come out of his shell in his contract year to get his change.
Agree on the Manu part but not SJax I would offer him less.
