I think he means that from the stand point of a contracts value over x number of years. If you are entering a contract season and get hurt, the next contract you receive will be less than the original value, short and long term. Think Elvis, he got his big payday the tore his pec the following season, if he had torn his pec prior to signing that contract there is no way he would have earned as much money.
