I think this contract says that Armstrong and Stillman had a little conversation and Stillman probably told him that a big money UFA isn't in the cards until the financial house is in order.
If Armstrong wants to acquire what we all want he'll have to get creative and trade dollar for dollar.
This is Army's way of hedging against not acquiring a dmen with the surplus of good forwards at his disposal. Though I think he will.
Certainly a LD of Jackman, Cole, and Russell isn't exactly championship caliber on paper.
But under the circumstances, Army continues to prove he's very thrifty. That's a pretty good contract especially without having to give him a 4th year.
