The contracts are based on the CBA, which allows somewhere between 14% and 18% of contracts to be in escrow which can be lost to the player (as in given back to the owners). So yes, all contracts signed to date have a 14-18% (can't remember the exact figure atm) potential "give back" to the owners. Which is why the owners have stopped asking for a rollback and asked for the current escrow mechanism to work it out.
