I don't think he demanded a trade or anything. It's more the writing was on the wall. With 20+ wins last season it does give him a bit of leeway to ask for more or look for a 1A/1B type role in another organization for more money. We wanted to get ahead of it by locking in a solid backup for that next year now while we could.
