By the way, Schaub's cap hit in 2014 is $14.5 mil and he won't have a $20 mil cap hit even in the last year.
In 2015 the year of JJs new contract Schaub is $17 mil and the yr after $19 mil

I know for sure that they extended Mankins in 2011, restructured Brady and Ocho Cinco's contract in 2012, and extended Brady this off-season.
NE just GTD the remaining $ on the contract and extended it 3 yrs. No Pay raise, Brady went from $20+ mil cap hit in 13' to $13mil. NE has $12 mil dead money from players cut. Even with NE $12 mil in dead money vs Texans $2 mil NE has 18 players @ $1.5 mil+ vs Texans 15 @ $1.5 mil+. (FYI-NE has 5 players w/ $1 mil in DM)
