My goal had been to win a championship, work toward the Hall of Fame, have my jersey retired by the team and I`d go in as a lifelong New York Giant, but I`m now resigned to the fact that this won`t happen. -- Michael Strahan, just when you think you're down...
And THIS is a perfect example of why I HATE restructuring/back loading contracts like this. You're going to pay the piper eventually.
An extension would solve all those problems. Lower cap hit, add actual money for Eli, and keep him on the giants longer.
That's really the only option they have. Even if Eli said he would take less money that wouldn't lower the cap hit
