I compared the payment of 4-3 DE to the payment of 3-4 OLBs. And the later wont get the money the DEs get.
Julius Peppers got a huge $15m AAV contract but Demarcus Ware got a 13m AAV contract 4 years before that. Given inflation and the like that's not a huge difference. If you are a top pass rusher it doesn't matter which front you play.
Both are HoFers and get paid like it.
In comparison Allen got a $12m AAV deal. It will be interesting to see what Miller, Smith and Matthew make over the next few years.
