In the pro era, I'm surprised the tradition is still considered.

It's a way of increasing the salary cap.

No doubt that they deserve a reward for service to the club, you don't hear of it on other clubs forums, I guess not many players play for just the one club for so long anymore.

They both deserve it for their contribution to the club , it is, IMHO a signpost that they will both be leaving within a couple of years, OTY to retirement and YBY to pastures new, maybe this is part of the deal to keep YBY with us for his final two year contract.

Wasn't the last Testimonial year that shared by Tom Croft and Matt Smith? Which was a few years back now?

Fully deserved IMHO and I wish they would sort out the YBY situation as, it seems to me, is affecting OTY.
