Exactly. There will always be exceptions, but the system that some players are in make them superstars/high targets. Remove them from said system and guess what? You just gave an average/above-average player an elite contract.
Adding a piece or two is no problem. Thinking that you're going to drop $100+ mil on FAs and win a Super Bowl? Pipe dream.
Could see exactly that happening in Jacksonville. Bet that Julius Thomas becomes the highest-paid TE in the league and turns into Marcedes Lewis v2.0. It's a lot harder to catch touchdowns from Blake Bortles than it is from Peyton Manning.
