The NFL's collective bargaining agreement isn't a friend to Philip Rivers and other quarterbacks of his ilk. Teams that can win with a young quarterback, I wrote on April 1, will reap gigantic value under this CBA. Here's an excerpt: "Because the NFL labor pact reached in 2011 slashed the salaries that players can make in their first several seasons, teams that acquired worthy quarterbacks from the classes of 2011-12 are able to better reward other players. It's only one reason, but a compelling one, to be bullish on the Colts (Andrew Luck), Seahawks (Russell Wilson), 49ers (Colin Kaepernick), Dolphins (Ryan Tanehill), Redskins (Robert Griffin III) and Panthers (Cam Newton)."
