Pats contract for life sent mikey ego into overdrive. That is a big reason he got reckless with Pats money. Never met a salary cap he did not hit. Wild spending on UFA 2-3 year rentals that were beat before they got here on the very backside of their careers. But got very fat guaranteed money up front mostly called at the time signing bonuses IIRC.
