I see some people backloading contracts to older players. Why are you doing that? In general, I see a lot of front and backloading. I can understand backloading on a young player who appears to be improving, or frontloading on an old guy who is slowing down, but I am seeing it on many guys in their prime, and in the opposite direction (frontloading young guys, backloading old guys). What is the idea there?
Since we're limited by the softcap now, but by the hardcap in the future backloading contracts maximizes value, by boosting the average salary, but freeing up more money now to bid on more players. Since the hardcap is 80 million I could theoretically backload every player I bid on by 1 million and still be under the cap if I bid on 15 players.
Secondly I don't we know what we're doing quite yet.
