I think the reason for the league pushing for shorter contracts is because it makes sense in a cap world and it reduces cost and risk for teams. There is simply no upside to long contracts (even more so if back diving is neutered) to anyone but star players. And they will always do well no matter what.
Okay, I can agree on that point, overall. Do you see a big difference between 5/7 or the PA's 8?
