At least one NFL general manager believes the coronavirus pandemic was responsible for fewer massive contracts this offseason.

"Some owners have to be concerned there might not be football, or it might be a shortened season, and their income could be drastically affected," the GM told Peter King of NBC Sports. "It's just uncertainty, and when there's uncertainty, some owners don't want to commit the money they usually do."

While the league still conducted free agency amid the pandemic, teams were unable to travel to meet with players in person.
