Ive been similarly interested in some of the details of how a players contract can be written. How are contracts handled if a player decides to retire while still under contract. While probably unrealistic, giving a player a 10 10 5 5 2.5 2.5 1.25 1.25 8 year contract would average out to a 4.68 million cap hit. If they were to retire before the start of the 7th year, they would be actually getting paid as a 5.8 mil cap hit player. Would the remaining contract still count against the cap, or is it similar to the longterm injured reserve where it doesn't count against the cap but still has to be paid out?
