I think you are making an invalid assumption by lumping most players into the "Play for pay" category.
While there is some degree of protecting that goes on, most players also realize that if they play that way it will be noticed. That, in turn, will DECREASE their free agent value as OTHER teams will not pay top dollar for a guy who phones it in.
Every guy who failed to perform this season saw his FA stock DROP. Meanwhile, guys who played their asses off (Greenway and Peterson) saw their stock RISE.
And that's what you're not taking into account. There are too many guys like Jared Allen, Antoine Winfield, or Pat Williams who would CALL THEM OUT.
But that didn't happen.
That tells me that guys are not sandbagging...they're just getting out played.

If they get the rookie salary cap it may not be so bad.
