Says you.

Well the contracts aren't unlimited now. Best case is the player is a star player at 21 needing a contract (started at 18 years old). So in theory 19-20 years would likely be the longest contract... as I don't see the league approving many deals that go past 40. So yes, while 5 years seems low, when you consider the financial aspect of insurance, it does make sense.
