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).
