      Looks like OL David Diehl restructured his
      contract, lowering his base salary from $4.2M to $1.2M. That clears
      another $1.5M in cap space.

    That's what I love about FA period. Contracts getting restructured as I'm getting ready for bed.

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

      [/quote]This may be a stupid question. But I don't understand the Cap. Why is it not 3m saved instead of 1.5m

      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.
