    The Redskins will make him play out his contract or keep him as a backup for the rest of his contract regardless. He still has an arm for the moment. He won't cost them much in terms of team salary cap under his rookie contract.
    New here? lol

    I still don't understand why Eli's salary this year is frowned upon like it is his fault. The man deferred money to final years of his contract. If it's guaranteed then its one thing, but Peyton manning was supposed to finish his career in InDy too.

    Because some people feel like he didn't play up to his contract therefore somehow he should take a pay cut.

    Silly, I know.

    That's not really how restructuring works. Actually Eli took more money when he restructured but he took it as a bonus not salary. Doing it that way allows the team to reduce his salary cap hit in the early years and defer the hit to the back of the contract. That "bonus"he takes when restructuring gets spread over the rest of his contract. So while he is receiving less salary from us next year, we are charged more against the cap for what we've paid him previously. That said, I agree with you. It's not Eli's issue but JR's issue to deal with and resolve.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    I don't think his salary is being frowned upon. The CAP is the culprit and we're discussing ways to retain some important players in light of the restricted CAP space which highlights Eli's contract simply because it's a significant piece of the pie. Eli is entitled to every cent of that contract as long as he's in a Giant uniform.
