Big names keep moving in new NFL

Free agency was aimed at giving players a chance to join teams other than the ones that drafted them.  The salary cap gave teams an incentive to dump older players who otherwise hoped to stay put.

Nearly 20 years later, it seems like big names are on the move more than ever, at the behest of the teams, not the players.

PFTV explores this dynamic.

    Unintended consequences for the players. The NFL got it right with non-guaranteed contracts. Unlike the NBA, you are not stuck in contract purgatory with a player who didn’t live up to his potential. In the NFL, guaranteed money and voidable contracts make for a more dynamic and balanced league than MLB or NBA. And with the quality of players coming out of college this year and next, the market for journeyman pros and former stars is shrinking along with their paychecks. When the players first won free agency, guys like Reggie White cashed in. Today, a big-earning superstar like Reggie might have been cut in a salary dump in favor of a younger, stronger and cheaper player.

    Your segment would be funnier and more entertaining if you used pictures on the TV of who you’re talking about, instead of NFL logos.
