Sets a pretty dangerous precedent if the NFL doesn't fight it. RBs that are used in the slot, or even RBs that catch passes out of the backfield, or hybrid OLBs that are used in coverage. Also it could be argued that players used predominately in special teams are their own position, and a higher-risk role commands more money, etc. Granted, guys that are dedicated special teamers aren't usually franchised, unless you have a great dedicated return man.
Also, it puts someone like Patrick Peterson in the headlights. He's used in, what, 3 different roles in Arizona? How do you figure that one out?
