Gammons Article - Helton on the way out?

Is Helton on his way out?

I was reading a Gammons article at espn (insider so I can't post the whole thing) but it has a clip regarding Helton.

"Healthy, he is still a great player and better person. But the back is an issue, and look at the OBP/SLG numbers the last three years: .469/.620, .445/.534, .404/.476. "The Rockies had a deal for him at the trading deadline but couldn't work out the contract," says one GM. Helton is owed more than $90M over the next five years, and the Rocks would love to move much of that despite the fact that Helton has been a leader in their rebuilding process. Robinson Cano's OPS was 10 points higher. STAYS"

A part of me thinks that if they were that close to dealing Helton the Denver Media would be all over it... but I guess you never know.  Could Helton have played his last season in Colorado?
