Man I can't believe how old these guys already are. Seems like just a couple years ago they broke into the league
Expanding on this, is the 35+ multi-year provision still in effect? Because that would probably make an 8 year contract extremely undesirable.

I think that's a big reason for the back-diving contracts in the first place. Because years past 35 are safer when signed from an under-35 contract compared to a 35+ contract. I hope they got rid of that rule.
