When to front load, balance, back load contracts?

Just curios to yalls opinion on to what type of contract you should give to your players. I figured that you should balance young players and back load veteran players. I also think you should avoid front loading contracts. Curious to hear yalls thoughts.

I would front load a contract on some older players.

Can we even do this on 12?

it all depends on the player and the team's cap situation.....but with all things being equal, i'd frontload veterans considerin most of their production is likely to come within the first few years.....i wouldn't wanna be paying Ray Lewis $12M when he's 38 in his 4th year of a 4-year contract (just making up an example)

Yes in fa when you win a bid on a player you dont choose the contract as far as how much they get paid. you get to choose weather to back load, front load, or balance it

That's why im gunna resist goin after players who are in their 30's....only as a stop-gap perhaps but definetly no long-term deals.....imma build my team through the draft and re-sigining current young players.....

Are bonuses the only thing guaranteed like the old CBA? If so then that is a reason to back load, you can always cut them. Most teams do that in the big money year anyway.
