I'd argue the opposite. Henne signed a similar deal with the Jaguars as Cassell with the Vikings. Many are taking them as mentor contracts signaling they will be drafting QBs of the future and are giving up on Ponder and Gabbert. The contracts are overpriced for backups and talent but structured to be tolerable to cut after the coming season. Kind of a feeding frenzy to not have to start the rookie by a trio of new head coaches.
