These automatically voiding contracts are so weird to me. We did something similar with Fairley right? I guess I don;t understand how the automatically voided years are beneficial to anyone.

Like it - It allows us to re-evaluate after the dreaded QB age 38 season.

These automatically voiding contracts. I have to think the NFL will stop letting us do them before long. They seem too powerful.

Maybe it has something to do with how the money gets distributed or impacts the cap.
