They would be retarded to agree to that, because it raises their chances of getting screwed next year to 100%. That "Restructured" money would be money they let walk, and there's no way that goes down, because we would cut them for sure. That leaves them to other get cut this offseason and sign a cheaper contract, get cut and go elsewhere, or else we keep them on and get bent over the table on salaries that won't see a return on the field.
Troy is only 32... so, technically, they could extend him for three years (like they did Farrior)... have him play one or two years, and then dump him (like they did with Farrior).

Keisel... well... he'll just have to take less money. He's 35, and has a young buck behind him (who produces when he plays).
