Sure he's a great value, but this is how the cap is designed, and the guy isn't going to go broke with his Million dollars this year, and another Million dollars plus over the next two seasons, not including any endorsements.
He is not broke but lets say he tears up both his legs next game - never plays again. Lets say RG3 never plays again
Whom would you rather be?.......... The fact that he can't resign would make many risk adverse towards the end of that 3rd year contract. Why run for first down when you are in week 14 of the third year and have $20 million / year waiting for you in 2 games......
RW would probably go for it but there are many out there that would be smart and honestly I would not blame them one bit. The rookie salaries needed to get under control but the veterans completely screwed the rookies. Flat out screwed them and if the rookies had any money in the bank they should have refused the draft / refused to sign under that CBA but they had no leverage and were out of time
