Top Heavy means that his contract pays his a lower amount of money each year. It's a high to low contract

I don't remember the exact contract details but let's say he signed a 4 year 15 mil contract 2 years ago

A top heavy contract would work something like this

Year 1- 4.5 mil
Year 2- 4 mil
Year 3- 3.5 mil
Year 4- 3 mil
