Didn't they actually cut it like $4 million after the lockout? His does a league that is making so much money actually go down $4 million?

It was a reset. They lowered it to start from square one and gauge just how much will be feasible since there would be new revenue deals as well as players getting additional benefits that takes away from the actual cap.

That's not going to help us any when Eli is making $20 mil next year in his newly restructured contract.

I assume that Eli will be taking up 1/6 of the Giants cap next year based on $20 mil salary vs. $120 cap? I don't know how the cap works, so maybe I'm wrong.

I may be wrong, but restructuring just resembles "kicking the can down the road" to me.

New TV revenues are going to kick in at both 2013/14. The cap is expected to balloon then. Not to mention Eli is really one of the very few I'd like to restructure since his salaries can be poured into a long extension.
