The Steelers and Patriots are NOT having to restructure contracts 3 years in a row. The Texans have converted quite a few of today's salaries to tomorrows dollars. When Mario became a FA and his $20 million salary came off the books the Texans still started the new year over the cap. Yep, these guys are doing a swell job.
I wouldn't say I'm an expert at the cap game; you will have to educate me here as to how the Texans have been in a bind.
