"What I don’t think people understand is that once a team hits the tax level the ability to improve our team is reduced dramatically. In addition, your ability to make trades is reduced. So basically, if we made the move to keep everyone together with five-year deals, the team we have today is going to be the team we have for the next five years. If we were a young team it would be one thing. But we are not a young team. 
Again, I know this is tough for all of us after winning a championship. But we still believe as much as last year we are in a position to compete for a championship. 
 The difference is that with this approach, we can be in a position to compete for a championship this year and to reload and continue to compete in future years. 
 By just signing everyone to long-term deals, there is no chance of that happening.”
