Any player getting a 5+ year contract IS set for life. They are holding out for circumvention contracts from teams with money to burn over a few years rather than signing for more money than all of us put together will make in our lives. I'm not jealous, but they shouldn't expect sympathy for "only" making 20-50M either.
