Just read that third year is a team option, and:

TEAM OPTIONS

With a Team Option, the player has no say in the outcome. If the team invokes the option, the player is under contract for another year. If the team does not invoke the option (meaning they do nothing), the player becomes an unrestricted free agent.

So if Jeremy carries on playing like the crap he is doing, he won't get that big fat pay off in the third year.
