    and iirc, peyton manning makes like 22 mil a year as well but perhaps the length of his contract is why the numbers are a bit higher. the numbers fall the longer the contract, and seeing as peyton got a 3 yr deal or 4 yr deal iirc, paying him over 20 mil per year is a lot different than where the contract like 7 yrs...

    It's confusing. You see the CAP hit and can't understand his paycheck doesn't add up to it.

    What exactly would you want Eli to do?

    Eli took a paycut last year. That is one reason why the contract is so loaded this year.

    He didn't take a pay cut and his salary this hasn't increased. They transferred $9m of his base salary last year into a signing bonus so it could be prorated over the remaining years of his contract. His cap hit increased this year because of it, not his salary.

    Eli did not take a pay cut last year.

    Your kidding, right? Shouldn't this post be in red font?
