Look around, game changing DTs are being paid over $20m. The market bears what the market bears.
Other than Donald, the only one was Buckner who the Colts signed to a big number (they had a ton of cap room) but with only about $39 million guaranteed.

Yes, other DTs are getting over $20m. It's the market. Jones is a significant piece for their defense.

Garrett just got paid $25m to play DE. And that won't even be the top DE salary by the end of the next season (whenever it gets played).

Who?

Maybe it is the market now. If the cap dives the next few years, I do not see DT being where the market rises significantly.

Donald, Buckner and Jones. I don't recall setting a minimum number that had to qualify.

As for the next few years, we are talking about about now. Right now it's the market.

If the cap is reduced due to revenue lost this year, that will be applied across the league and not confined to certain positions.

Your, or indeed my own, personal assessment of what a DT 'should' make doesn't come into this.
