I understand your point: $17 million per season locked into two WRs seems like a lot... except, these two are like the early days of Boldin & Fitzgerald: the BEST, young receiving duo in the NFL. Pittsburgh wouldn't need another "starting" WR for the next five years.
And, that fiscal handcuffs is actually the crux of my point: focus most of the money on offense; use the draft picks on defense.
And... abide, dude... abide.
[EDIT: I hope that everyone gets this reference... and doesn't think that I am actually "telling" him to abide...]
