So while the team is already spending more on him in your bridge contract scenario (and with a higher cap hit over the entire term), it also seriously undervalues what his second contract could be worth.
6 X 4.5 = 27

5 (over two years, bridge contract / 2.2 + 2.9 as posted previously) + [4 X 5.5] = 27

it does add up, thank you very much. Besides, it was just an example, even if there a Million or two difference, over 6 years it isnt all that much.
