I dont think this has been said yet but a big part of why the league wants the 5 year cap on salaries is to keep second salaries down. With a 5 year limit, the changes to UFA age and the increased ability to take players to arbitration they work to keep players leverage down. Teams cant buy up many of those UFA years when they are handing out contracts if the max length is 5 years. Players salaries will be forced down until they get closer to 28.
