That might just be the price of average talent now. I would rather the players get the money than the owners just pocket it by the twenties of millions. Heck, look at the prices backup/platoon players are signing for this offseason. $5-7M a season. For guys who aren't playing every day. Times have changed with these new tv deals, both for the national deal and the individual teams. The players are getting their appropriate raises based off of how much money is now available.
