That would mean he'd make close ($600K + $630K base = $1.23M) to the RFA tender amount, but would make his 2013 cap number $750K, so there'd still be a decent amount of Cap savings from the $1.3M RFA tender.

Also, understanding that his replacement, even if a rookie (and untested), would be making at least $405K.
