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 higher 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.
