They are not being paid that at 40 years of age....at this point they are being paid 1 million....Their cap hit is still the average amount of their salary over the term of their contract.
Going to the yearly paid amount as the cap hit would correct this....if the player gets 20 million his first year then that is his cap hit for that year.
Or maybe something like: Only 10 percent max of a contract can be a signing bonus....so a 10 year 100 million contract would be max of 10 million signing bonus and it could be spread over the length of the contract in any way.
