I agree Bogo and Wheeler will get big raises but I don't think this will impact Little too much. He currently has a 2.4 M cap hit and would likely get somewhere in the 3.5 - 4 M per year range, so you are only looking at 1.5 M difference. With Hainsey and Antro's contracts expiring you have 8.5 M right there. Jet's are not up against the cap ceiling so there is lots of room yet. I would hate to lose a valuable 2nd line guy like Little. If we are ever to contend we need the type of depth and versatility he provides.
