You'd get rid of heavy front loading and also make it impossible to tack on BS years at league minimum, or at a huge discount compared to cap hit.
Isnt it already like that?

And that still leaves situations like this :

15 year contract at 112m

6m
14m
12m
12m
12m
12m
12m
12m
12m
3m
3m
3m
3m
3m
3m


it never drops below 50% of the first year
