Now if he blows up and we can't afford/lose him then we have a real problem. I thjnk he is restricted next year, but it would be wise to lock him up sooner rather than later if he is the future #1 as we believe.

I don't like losing emerging players in their mid 20s either, but you have to hope that there is a plan in place.
Will be interesting to see the numbers that Lewis gets. I think that Allen could easily be an upgrade over Lewis (even though putting Gay on the field is a major step back), and it would make a lot of sense to lock Allen up now or perhaps after next year.
