That could bite us in the but in a few years.
Assuming McD gets 4.5M, Step gets 4M, Hags gets 2M, Zucc gets 1M, Falk gets 1.5M (ballparking on this one), that still leaves us 5M under the cap
Brooks' numbers are inaccurate. For example, Bickel counts against the cap 100% in the summer.
That being said, for the bolded point... when talking about RFAs, the longer term the contract, the
the Cap hit, not lower. That's because you're taking up the more lucrative years of the player's career. If you want to go cheap on RFAs coming off of their ELCs, you offer them 2 years.
