Probably not. We'll have to wait and see what the annual base salaries look like and whether they just did a bolt-on to his existing contract (started everything in '05) or whether they also restructured his 2004 base as part of the deal like they did with Aaron Glenn's extension. If they included part of his 2004 base into that signing bonus, it could actually lower his cap number for this year. Either way, it looks like a very affordable deal that won't break the bank. I wonder if Payne is next...
