And of course it will be for the betterment of the team. Eli is 36 years young, he will turn 39 in 2020 which is when his contract is up and becomes a FA -- however it won't get to that point.
I also say this with the hypothetical that we win another Super Bowl or two.
This is all health permitted and assuming the core of the team stays strong. Which is something Jerry Reese may need to keep in the back of his head. Yes we have a closing window but we don't really know just how fast or how small/big that window actually is.
