    If Eli's salary is inflated this season, then it was deflated during the 2011 SB season. You judge a contract's worth as a whole, not year to year.
    And Reese will handle the CAP as best he can.

    Losing him will also cripple the team.

    As I've been saying. An extension would clear cap space.

    Convert his base to a signing bonus and spread it through an additional couple years.

    But you still have to pay him a salary for those extended years. Eli is not going to agree to spreading his existing negotiated contract over more years for the same original contract amount. Suppose he's hit his prime and starts to decline?

    I don't see any scenario where Eli departs before his current contract is up

    So if I'm reading you correctly RF, he was entitled to give us $7 million less in performance value?

    I'm only talking about his contract. I'm not trying to link it to his performance. Eli didn't "lose" $7M

    Eli's contract is what it is. We have to live with it and work around it.
