On the flip side... wouldn't it be safe to expect Insurance companies to once again increase their coverage to 7 years if a max contract limits were to be set at 7?

i.e. there would be such a smaller number of players (hypothetically) signing 6-7 yr contracts that it should theoretically decrease their risk level enough to be able to expand coverage..

or maybe the opposite occurs... setting a contract max of 7 creates a target that every significant player and agent shoots for, increasing the ratio of players in the league with >5 yr contracts from its current ratio...
