Six out of 14 on that list are "bad contract," "stupid contract" or "overpaid." But here's the thing -- all contracts, including bad or stupid ones, set market rates. Those are all comparables DD's agent will look at. He won't care whether the guy should be paid that much, he'll just care that the guy is being paid that much. If some of those guys are overpaid, maybe DD is better than them and therefore should be paid as much or more. That's the starting point his agent will bring to negots.
