I expect a deal to get done within the next couple of years because the cap rules won't allow proration to non-CBA years.
Teams are allowed to prorate signing bonuses beyond '07 (the uncapped year and last year of the CBA).

There is a 6 year allowable proration this year, a 5 year proration allowable in '05, and a 4 year allowable proration in '06. I guess that's so teams can still get the benefit of some proration up until the year before it goes uncapped.
