Well, either way not restructuring keeps his future cap hits low and gives the team to cut him with less cap charges.
Part of his 18 mill guaranteed -- only 10 mill in SB.
People say it is a bad deal -- but really we just added two years of commitment. After this year we save 1.5 mill to cut him - or we could keep him for 5.5 mill a year (if he performs well in 2013, that's a good deal for a quality DT). After that he's got silly salaries of 7, 7.5, and 10.5 mill. I doubt that when he signed the deal, he expected to see those years ... yet people scream about the size of the deal and length, totally ignoring that 3 years and 25 mill of it is total fantasy.
