    Why??? He hasn't even had a season where he made a leap and bounds showing for our offense other than being a good role player if that.

    Devin McCourty, (our number one cornerbacks twin brother) is getting $700K per season; Dez Bryant is getting $1.8 per season; John Abraham is getting $2.1 Million per season; Hakeem Nicks is getting $2.7 Million per season and Maurkice Pouncey is getting $1.1 Million per season;

    Pretty much the reason why our team always has salary cap problems.

    Stevens is like having an extra (good) lineman who can go out and catch passes. He rarely has drops. It's like asking why Levitre just got his new contract. We need guys like him. Comparing his salary to those playing different positions (and some in their rookie contract, wtf?) is asinine.

    It's been almost a decade since this team has had to purge anyone for salary cap reasons.

    The new rookie wage scale PLUS minimum salary cap % used means vets will make more money now. We've steadily been paying our guys in the last couple years to be in adherence with these rules.

    Instead of paying an unproven Rookie QB Sam Bradford 100 million with massive guarantees.... We pay role players like Stevens 2.5 mil a year. Get over it.

    When you look back at the wages in 5 years, these numbers will look fine.

    John Abraham is old, he's not going to get good money.
    Dez, Nicks, Devin, and Pouncey are all under their rookie contracts still.

    The team doesn't decide how much they make, the NFL/NFLPA makes that decision. Those 4 players you listed will get paid when that rookie contract expires.
