He doesn't now, but he's on the end of a deal, so it's unclear what he'll be making next year. I agree, he won't be making that much and he's a stupid player to jettison given the good things he does at a low cost. However, I remain unconvinced this team will part with some other obvious players to move away from for cap purposes if nothing else--like Randy Jones.

What the player ultimately earns and how you have to account for it on the bottom line with respect to the cap are two different things. JVR will not be a <1M rookie contract, he'll have a significant chunk of the salary cap.
