There's a very good reason that cap hit is calculated over the life of a contract. That's obviously been gamed, but the damage from it being gamed isn't nearly as great as the damage if you don't have that system in place to begin with. So instead, you cap the length of a contract, and govern the size of the changes in dollar figures allowed.
Just force salaries to be equal throughout the contract.
