Gotcha...didn't catch "of the highest." So basically they could still start the deal at 8 and end it at 2. I still see room for trickery there. A team could still do a 10/9/8/8/7/7/6/6/5/4/2.5/2.5 type 12 year deal with a couple fake years at the end...just like now. I think the league will push hard for a hard maximum deviation per year requirement (say 10%) as opposed to merely a start to end variance limitation.
