Wow. If I'm reading this right that's really mindblowing they are ignoring the natural cap recapture rules like that (ie ones were the the player is paid less than the cap hit and only using years where the salary is more than the cap hit. That makes no sense.

Imagine a scenario

5m 5m 10m 10m 7.5m 7.5m

after 4 years the player's wife gets sick and he retires to spend time with her figuring he has enough money.

that team has paid out 30m in cap and 30m in salary but gets 2.5m +2.5m in cap recapture penalties.
