Because what they do is take that 3M, give it to him as a bonus, but they have to spread that equally over the length of the contract. So it lowers the number for this year, but adds money to the years after. Thats why restructuring contracts is bad. They are picking guys with smaller deals so it won't hurt as bad later.

Restructuring is bad for future year cap hits if the player finishes out the contract, but not so much if the player is cut This increases the chances Diehl will be cut after next year.
