His offense alone doesn't justify 5 mil cap hit but the totality does. You also have to factor that he was brought in as a UFA, those have a 500k-1mil annual premium having multiple teams bidding on them.
You are buying the player not just paying him regular market value
Actually it's the other way around, that's his market value because it get's established by The Market. RFA's you can get below market value because you are usually the only bidder. But besides that excellent post.
