The amount of money we are paying him is not even close to justification for the return we get. We have way too many players to re-sign (might have to include Decker now after yesterday's game--without him we likely don't win that game). We have to use that cap money for our other needs. Champ is a "luxury" that just can't be afforded based on the return we have been getting and will get over the rest of this season--even if he comes back and plays relatively well for a few games.
Yes- Champ is probably done after this year unless he wants to make pennies on the dollar and play a much more diminshed role.
Its been great to have him all of these years, but time and age awlays catch up.
