I love Lando, but that is steep.
Steep indeed but at 7 years, I think it'll be okay. The game Landy plays makes him rich man's Callahan and as the future of the franchise and the captain of the team, $5.57M AAV for 7 years will be fine. The contracts that are given out nowadays and with the expected hype in salary and cap, it might be over payment for 2-3 years depending on how he does or how well the Avs do but if at any point he reaches the level that he's capable of reaching (injuries and shorten season last year) with the right crew around him AND a COMPETENT coach, his contract will work out just fine. It's not exactly easy to under cut your captain, face of franchise, and all star calibre player.
