I'd like to see Chris Harris signed to an extension.

Tony Carter is restricted this season, so would make sense to try to get a deal done there if they see him as a good CB longterm.

After next season, probably have to look into signing D Thomas and Von Miller

I absolutely read every word! I just didn't pay much attention to it.

My argument was about contracts in general, not just rookie contracts. Are you saying the same rule applies to all contracts, not just rookie contracts? If so, God can appear at the front office and order them to give a new contract to someone... Just askin, then sayin...

We also need to re-sign Bruton for special teams.
Yeah I would sign them all to nice veteran role player deals. Also, I would give a mid starter money contract extension to Chris Harris and Tony Carter. I would also pay Clady top 5 LT money!

I'm not saying I would necessarily sign all 4 of those guys again. Maybe, maybe not.

But he asked who we thought would potentially "walk". Those were the 4 on the top of my head.

We will definitely re-sign Clady (or franchise him). We SHOULD re-sign Bruton. Other than that, I don't think we have any impending free agents that are "must signs". Some would be nice to keep, but aren't necessarily critical.

With the new CBA does it apply to contracts before it was signed? I don't know but lots of times this type of stuff only applies to contracts signed after it was voted in and contracts before get grandfathered in on old rules.
