What keeps an A-Rod situation from happening is the cap

But teams can avoid the cap by signing bonuses correct? I just dont understand how rookie contracts keep inflating

No stones coming from this direction - I wouldn't want the Steelers to either at this point, and Ben has actually DONE something in the league. Which shows how preposterous this proposed deal really is.

bens stats will have to improve big time ,over what he's done in the last few years to ask for that kinda money.if you want top 5 money you have to have top 5 stats.

Imagine what Schneider would do with his roster without the cap. Would Brady backup Manning or would Manning backup Brady?

The thing is, though, Ben already has a Super Bowl ring and is showing signs that another is on the horizon somewhere down the road. So the case can be made, based on his career record, that he should be paid more than Romo.

I have to think the Cowboys are going to balk at that $30 million figure. I mean, how many games has Romo started? He's not exactly battle tested, and he was responsible for the fumbled snap that lost their playoff game (notice how everyone has conveniently forgotten that debacle?).

To quote a typical mutual fund prospectus, "past performance does not guarantee future results," but IMO Ben's Super Bowl ring and a 37-12 won-loss record as a starter (including post-season) are together worth more than Romo's fumbled snap and handful of wins. I guess it remains to be seen where the salary bar ends up being set.
