NFL contracts are the envy of all the owners in the other 3 major sports in the US.
Bryz actually is under pressure to keep his contract though. If he gets bought out he only gets 2/3 of it, and that will be paid over 14 or 12 years so the real value is even lower than two thirds.

Of course, he would be free to sign with any other team, but what team would give him a good deal? It's a different situation than Luongo who I see getting a 5 year $25 million contract if he is bought out.
