I have never and still don't feel he's a good fit for this team. We need a hard nosed defender willing to assert himself offensively when needed, capable of breaking down the opposing team's defense to kick it out to an open man or finish.

Jose isn't this guy, never has been this guy and I'm quite certain never will be this guy. If he was making 4mill it might be swallowable, particularly off the bench, but not at 8mill.

So to answer your question I don't want anything more from him, except value in return from a trade.
