Burnett, Jays Talking Extension?

A.J. Burnett's agent is in Toronto, and Jeff Blair of the Globe and Mail hints that preliminary extension talks may have begun. Blair says it'll take at least $15MM a year to sign Burnett, which the Jays will attempt to do before he opts out and hits the open market.

I imagine Burnett requires four years, with five within the realm of possibility.  It will undoubtedly be a risky contract, though J.P. Ricciardi gambled on Burnett's stuff back in '05 and it worked out pretty well.  Pretty much all free agent contracts for top pitchers are risky.
