Well...its not actually 12 mil, its a bit over 10.
As Oscar pointed out on Twitter, the 2 is the prorated portion of his signing bonus which would accelerate against the Eagles Cap. It would still result in a 6 mil cap savings for them though.
So now you are looking at 10 mil this season and a bit less in the next few years. It would in effect be 3 years for 30.
You convert some of that first year salary into a bonus and it spreads the cap charge out over the next 3 years (so for example, make it a 6 mill bonus so contact counts 6 mil this year (4 mil salary = 2 mil for the bonus...IE 1/3) but more like 11 or 12 in the next few years (because you add 2 mill to each of those years).
Its probably too expensive, but the question remains...how much is it going to cost to resign Crab? Is he going to want north of 10 mil per? Jackson is signed for the next 3 years.
Something interesting to talk about at least.
