Already refuted. Mahomes signed a "team friendly" deal so the Chiefs could retain a major player in Chris Jones. If M doesn't take a salary in the upper 20 mil/season, the Chiefs lose Jones. Refuted. The Seachickens paid Sherm and Earl a fortune. Cost them major players on their Dline. Result: No more super bowls. Refuted. Rams paid Gurley and Goff a fortune. More like overpaid. Cost them Saffold, Cooks, Sullivan(C), Barron, Joyner, Littleton, Fowler. Result: Major slide from super bowl appearance to 9-7 and missing playoffs. Refuted. This is easy. When teams overpay players, it costs them dearly. Do you really think Belly wants to let guys like Chandler Jones, Jaime Collins, Logan Ryan, Kyle Van Noy walk? Of course not. Why does he? Salary cap. Refuted. Rethink this one Whirlygig, you've got it wrong.
