The mstake the league made is in the 35+ rule. Rather then it apply only to players signing a contract after age 35, it should have also included a clause that imposes it on all contracts that bring a player into that age group. You want to sign a player till age 45 to cut the cap hit fine, but if he retires you are responsible for the cap hit till the contract is up. A rule like this would make it easy to deal with all the cases in a uniform manner, not on a contract by contract basis.
