•On a multi-year contract, the cap hit will be based on the average annual salary.
•i.e., if a player signs a three-year deal paying $7 million in year one, $5 million in year two, and $3 million in year three, the salary cap charge is $5 million per year for three years.
BUT....You look at a guy like Michael Rozsival:
6 mill, 4 mill, and 3 mill....it says his cap hit is 5 mill but when you do the math its 4.3-- how does that happen?
Is it the bonuses? Do bonuses count against the cap hit?
