Are the era of long big contracts coming to an end ?
It's not surprising that Flaco wants to sign a $100 million contract and that Revis wants big bucks to stay with the Jets but the time is coming, I believe, when there will be more performance incentives than dollars. If anyone player becomes a superstar all pro with a team and signs for huge money than there is no doubt that the rest of the teams talent is going to suffer. Today to win you need talented people on both sides of the line but everyone is signed on what they have done in the past not on what they could do now with the current team and schemes.
I believe that the days of huge contracts are going to come to an end but for a select few. The cap just makes it almost impossible to spread talent on the field as the Ravens are about to find out.
