Fallacy? it is been happening since FA and the cap has been in place. Guys understand they hit FA 1 time they must cash in and so Dak today may end up being the 2nd highest but yet in 2 years that deal will be surpassed by the time he hits 4 to 5 years of the deal he will be around the 8th and likely lower than that. Guys are not looking at and saying I will take 15th most money knowing damn well they would be vastly underpaid by the time they hit the end of their deals. Again people are treating this like contract are 1 year and the cap never moves, none of this is a fixed scale and with big money coming to the NFL on TV contract which Amazon just signed worth 3 billion dollars they players and the union expect to be paid as such.
