Instead, New England used the savings to sign a host of proven veterans at much lower prices, including a former All-Pro running back (Fred Taylor); a speedy receiver with almost 11,000 career yards in receptions (Joey Galloway), a solid pair of cornerbacks (Shawn Springs, Leigh Bodden), and veteran backups at linebacker and tight end (Tully Banta-Cain, Chris Baker).
Neither the owners nor the union are enamored of seeing disproportionate amounts spent on rookies at the expense of veterans, so that disparity should be addressed in future labor negotiations. And with the owners having opted out of the collective bargaining agreement a year ago, this season could be the last played with a salary cap. That would leave only the "balanced" schedule to assure that parity remains a centerpiece of the NFL's future. However, fans that prefer parity to dynasty can rest easy. It is the schedule that is the essential component in those rapid NFL turnarounds.
Not the balanced schedule, but the critical imbalances within it. Each team plays two games or 12.5 percent of its schedule, against different teams than its division rivals.
