What's even more eye opening is that the cap averaging method lets you spread the total equally over the term. Now, if you take Z's actual pay per year and were to look at the actual pay as a percentage of the cap, his share is even higher.
If you take Suter's actual pay of $12 MM, he will get 17% of the cap. His cap hit says he only gets 10.7%.
Moral of the story? This system is really screwed up.
