Excellent point and throw in guessing about what the future of the going rate will be. Generally there is a gradual incline across all positions with the growth of the cap. But RB has taken a sharp hit since Foster's deal was signed that I don't think anyone saw coming. I don't hold something like that against the decision makers.
