If Lex is making the minimum as stated (or anywhere near that), I think he will be extended ... because contrary to a lot of chatter, we're thin on talent & depth. I think he's on the team until another can take his Roster Spot for RB & Special Teams.
These recent seasons scream we need talent ... (AND we don't want to get beat from Special Teams again) ...
2008 11-5 ... ave. talent, but Pennington won a lot of close games
2011 6-10 ... Moore saved our bacon from the fire
