Nice interview. Unfortunately by the time he is due for a contract renewal I suspect his view on how the NFL's FO interact with players is going to be a little jaded. Only way all the players get paid that he mentions is that Rice, Miller, Leon and either Mebane or Red (maybe both) will be shown the door.
John Clayton wrote a column a few weeks back and he claimed your usual NFL team cannot have more than 8 players making > $6M. Now whether he pulled that number out of thin air or not, your QB, LT, all-world FS and Top CB coming due around the same time is going to make things tough, especially with Harvin soon to make > $12M.
Next offseason and beyond is going to be tough for those who got close to some of the fan favs with the team. The business side is just how things have to be with a cap and non-guaranteed contracts.
