We really dont know for sure yet how good or bad the free agent class will be. A lot will depend on the amount of compliance buyouts. The free agent crop may improve quite a bit.

Also the amount of teams bidding doesn't change the fact that none can offer more than a 7 year deal with only so much front loading. It would basically boil down to who could sell their team the best. Add in the cap upper limit holding at 64.5mil and there may be less teams capable of getting into the bidding as well.
