Ah but it is ... as the team getting said player is getting him at a discounted salary cap hit for the duration of the deal - Pending the player was worth the initial value.
Basically they are paying less for the same production
. In this case , the Dolts are getting a ~4.6m player for 1.3m this season. They save 3.335m in both actual cash and cap space.
What's more valuable to you , Trent Richardson at 4.6m or Trent Richardson at 1.3m ?? This is comparing apples to apples .... for once.

OT has become one of the premier positions in the game , I cant see Matthews being on the board beyond the 4th-5th picks.
Bridgewater , Clowney & Mariota .... who else do you see going in front of Matthews ?
