if you were in a situation where you could guarantee $51 million today or $500,000 next year then $4 million then $6 million, then $10 million, then a change at free agency, but none of those years are guaranteed until the season starts, and an injury could leave you with nothing, which would you choose? I'd take the $51 sure thing

Me too  ....  my thought is along the lines that the union wants to build payroll.    They don't like it when someone doesn't toe the line or rock the boat.
