what year does his cap number start to decline? the ugliest part of this deal is the fact that it was always taken as a given that the salary cap would continue to rise and make this deal less egregious. instead, it now seems it'll take time for the cap just to get back to this year's level
It won't go down, its the average amount of money per year that goes against the cap. His average salary will always be the same
