Yeah, cause you know, getting the average salary of the top 5 highest paid guys at your position just sucks. Please, that one year contract sets the franchised player and his family up pretty comfortably. So they could get hurt or play poorly and miss out on that big contract the next offseason? Same could happen under contract, they just get cut. These guys are getting paid far too well to get any sympathy from me. Besides, they DID agree on the Franchise rules.
