Contract Extensions - 2011
Did they paid off? These numbers say "no"
Here are past single-season contract extensions where the extension
salary was greater than the following season's actual salary.
Note - since there are so many extensions and many are duplicates
between leagues, we only show the players - not the leagues/teams
where they were signed. Also, this lookup is actually done on
any player who had a contract entering the 2012 season. In
some cases, the contract may have been signed in 2010 or earlier as a
multi-year contract. (So the contract signing may appear unwise
in a single-season perspective, but may have been a reasonable risk a
year or two earlier).
