Maybe the PA can keep it at a length of 6 or 7 years rather than 5 but it'll still be short enough that front loading wont be a serious concern. Rich teams will still be able to hand out bigger contracts
but they'll have to deal with the cap hit. No $7.5 cap hit when you're paying someone $14
I don't disagree with that. I think limiting contract length is stupid though.
But after the long calm, there are now beginnings of a stir. The reunion at hand may joy, it may bring fear. But let us embrace whatever it brings. For they are coming back. At last, the promise has been made.
