And I like the idea of locking up Cushing, but I feel he may want to play a year before getting a deal, hed be worth a lot less if signed now
Pushing the cap hit into future years is just delaying the inevitable - that you WILL have to take that cap hit. Every penny you pay a player will count against the cap sooner or later. And if you make that the way you operate your business, you will be caught chasing your tail, like the Cowboys, where they've had millions in dead money because they cut players that had been previously "restructured." Now they're doing the same thing, and IMO, it's a terrible way to run your football team.
