Brown hadn't accomplished anything yet.
DL was taking a risk that Brown would pan out as a player. He was right, and now the contract is a steal. Initially though, the contract was probably a slight overpayment.
Simmond's 4M cap hit takes up 5.7% of the current cap (70.2M).
Brown's 3.1M at the time took up 6.2% of the Cap (50.3M).
