Team friendly contracts are a joke. Many who have tried such techniques with a big name player have had it backfire on them. Until the NFL gets some real teeth to force players to honor their contracts, there's no real advantage to doing an early deal where, for example in Clady's case, we never knew for sure if he'd return to top tier status.
