Riverman, Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but I think KVB is the opposite example. The guy had some major injuries, and his original team let him go. The titans signed him to a one year cheap contract and he over performed by a landslide. The Titans did sign him to a better contract, but it was not the most money he could have gotten. Sorry, I don't have a link, but he said/others said about him, that he could have gotten a little more money from other teams, but the Titans gave him his shot and he was willing to stay for below his max value. KVB was loyal to the franchise, not the paycheck. He's the example of the guy who really earns his big reward, but doesn't have to get every penny or leave.
