Yes. There's no other way to deal with escrow other than based on monies paid to the players. The players are allowed 57% and not a penny more. If it were based on the cap hit, then in years where the salary is higher than the cap, the players would be getting a lot more than 57%.
I've been looking for trouble... but trouble hasn't been cooperating!
