Five Million Dollars Per Apostrophe?

Imagine my surprise when I read the following tidbit in John Clayton's latest article:

"The Texans' Andre Davis is also going to make $5 million a year, and no one is 100 percent certain he's a starter."

Did I miss something?  $5,000,000.00 per year?  Look, I love Apostrophe Davis.  I think the guy is a helluva return man, and his contributions at WR, particiularly when Andre Johnson was out, were enormous.  But five million dollars per year, for multiple years?  For a guy who'd be your kick returner and at best your No. 3 WR?  Sorry, but I wouldn't pay that.

Maybe Apostrophe will get that kind of scratch somewhere, and I'd never say he isn't worth it.  You're worth whatever the market says you're worth.  But if I'm Smithiak, and that's what it's going to take to bring him back to Reliant Park, I thank him for his contributions and wish him the best.  Am I out of line here?
