I think teams have been conservative with that because the mark has changed a few times over the years. Killing two birds with one stone and trying to avoid Super 2 makes sense, also, and I think that's what a lot of teams do.

Obviously, for the Cardinals, Super 2/extra year of arb matters less than to a team like KC or Tampa.
Good point. For KC, that extra year of arb could mean $6-8 million and ultimately that's just not going to make/break most teams.

For the Cards, all that really matters is that extra year of team control, more for the purposes of leverage in a long-term deal than anything. Now if you try to extend him, you're buying out 1 fewer FA year and that could really mean a lot.

I was not aware that they moved the service time line much. I know it's always shifting for Super 2 status, but the service time thing seems pretty static. Ultimately I'd be a little less nervous about it now w/ the brand new CBA in place.
