Eli is signed through 2019, at salaries of $13 million, $10.5 million, and $11.5 million in each of the next three seasons.
If he plays well, that's real cheap for the QB spot and will leave money for other needs. Did Eli all of a sudden become a bargain?
I think 2 is the number meaning he starts in 2017 and 2018. My guess is his replacement starts in 2019.
