Those big contracts really have helped both sides till now - the teams usually wind up buying a couple years of FA off with those big second deals, and the player gets more security earlier in his career. If insurance is an issue, then I could see capping the second contract at five years then leaving it unlimited in FA...keeping free agency free.
