Makes the 5-year, $25 mil deal for Aaron Smith look like a real steal.

He better be for that kind of cash. That includes a 30milion dollar signing bonus.

It's a mindset thing.

Your team can be a revolving set of league minimum paid no-names with a few big overpaid superstars or a real team of talented players and only a few stars. I'll take the team thanks.

I am no big fan of the Colts but only New England has had more success this decade - hard to say which method is clearly superior, since the New England "team" method rests on the foundation of having one of the biggest (and deservedly one of the best paid) stars at QB.

I dont know if anyone relized this but his new contract makes him the highest paid defensive player in NFL history.

Can you say dead cap space?? Indy will regret this move, wait till this guy blows out a knee and can't play the last years of his contract. No one player is worth that much when you have to manage a salary cap.
