Personally I'm hoping almost all of it is incentive.

Well, personally I'm not a big fan of this move at all. But Ken wanted his guy and he got him, at the expense of a very good backup in Ryan Fitzpatrick. Goodbye Ryan, you didn't deserve a lot of the hate you received.

Welcome to the new world order ladies and gentlemen.
