Restructures do happen in year after or 2 years into new deal all the time. There will be many restructures around the league this year(more than usual). It is all part of the Covid effect.
So any research prior to this year still wouldn't equate to what is needed around the league to make money work.
Like I said though teams that are usually tight to the cap have to restructure guys contracts to give them more space. Happens every year, but this year is different for all involved.
Im not trying to be argumentative either, or even saying it is going to happen. Just laying out the possibility and how it could help us.
I don’t usually pay attention to contracts and medications of them and I’ll respect that you do but I would be very surprised if it is common or even often that they get restructured the year after they are drafted.
ugh. I may have to research this because now you’ve sparked my curiosity
I like it. I agree with a lot of your player choices. I think Carman is one of the more underrated OTs in the draft, with a lot of analysists thinking he's going to have to be moved to OG. But I think he's just playing about 25 lbs too heavy. He gets out to the second level and has really nice feet in pass pro for a 345 lb guy...
Personally, I think Lance will be bid up into the teens of Round 1, and I doubt that Ballard will be in on the Lance train. Many of those one-year wonder QBs haven't done that well in the pros (Trubisky, Bortles, Haskins, Paxton Lynch). Plus, I've never really heard anyone talk much about his intangibles - intelligence, leadership, character. These things are really important to Ballard. Call me crazy, but I think that Ballard is going to sit on Kyle Trask - if he's there at 21, we take him; if he's gone, we probably take an OT...
restructures happen all the time after contracts are drawn up. One could argue with a base at $10m this year, that might even of been the plan when the created the contract, to give them some flexibility if cap dropped further than anticipated.
They knew the cap might drop, but not to what extent. It might not happen, it might, but it gives the Colts the option to gain nearly $7m in cap space this year if they need to, and options to gain cap space are few and far between.
Kelly restructure $6.75
Doyle Release - $4.35
$11.1m in cap savings
Only other option to gain more cap space would be Glowinski($5m range) and that doesn't make much sense.
