Also add keisel to the mix too! I love the loyalty that this team has. They know what has to be done to keep these guys together and there doing it!!!!
It's not about loyalty. Hell, these guys are happy to restructure because a larger portion of their contracts are paid upfront in the form of a signing bonus (which the team can spread across the life of the contract in terms of salary cap). So the team gets cap relief and the players get paid upfront, with the down side being if the player is injured they still pocket that upfront money.
