Default Schaub willing to restructure

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/rapid-r.../post/15360139

Schuab would be willing to restructure his contract to be able to sign more free agents. Looks like he is pulling a Sanchez! I am okay with that, it just shows his commitment to the team.

Seems like a day late, and possibly a few million bucks short.

That is what I was thinking when I first saw it. Regardless, it could open up enough room to sign a corner or resign Vonta.

I know AJ just signed a new deal last year, but considering the Texans went out of their way to take care of him when they didn't have to do anything, maybe AJ will step up and agree to restructure his deal to allow some room under this year's cap.
I really don't know a thing about capology, so it might not even be possible, but AJ has been pushing for getting Aso in Houston. You never know, right?

It isn't unthinkable for AJ to say, "Hey Aso, if you come here I will give you $_______ million out of my paycheck!"

Why the flying squirrel would AJ give up money to have Aso make more money than him?

So that his entire career is not wasted by the Texans....

I doubt he would do this and agree with you, but I'm just saying....not totally unreasonable as I bet he wants to win at this point more than make $$.

He knows he owns Houston and is going to the HOF. Now he needs wins.

Maybe. But there is a base instinct as well. He has been named best WR in the NFL for a couple years now. I just don't see him going from $9 mil to $8 mil so that Aso can go from $12 mil to $13 mil. Restructure sure. But not less actual money.

Agreed. Besides, how many times can we rely on AJ's largess? That song and dance will get old. He's doing everything he can possibly do to help the Texans. Sooner or later, the Texans need to reply in kind.

Default Re: Schaub willing to restructure

First, when players restructure for salary cap benefit, they don't give up money - they defer it, and they make their contract more salary friendly (at least on a short-term basis), but they don't cost themselves any money in the long term. I'm not saying it's never happened, but if it has it's very, very rare.

Secondly, the contract that makes the most sense to restructure for salary cap purposes is Mario's. His base salary is almost $14 Million, and he's entering the final year of his contract. I don't know this for a fact, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Texans liked the idea of extending him anyway, it could free up money for 2011, and it would avoid the possibility of having to franchise him after the the upcoming season.

This obviously requires the willingness of both parties, but it's got the most potential to benefit the team's salary cap situation right away.

Are you serious? Just last year the Texans tore up AJ's contract with something like 5 years on it, and gave him more money, just to take care of a player who was being under paid. There was absolutely nothing forcing the team to do that other than wanting to take care of Andre Johnson.
That more than qualifies as "largess" by the Texans.

Because Aso is working a deal with New York. The boat appears to have sailed yesterday, when the Jets flooded the media about their interest in Aso. Now it seems that they are only a Sanchez restructured contract away from signing him.
