Honest question, how is Andre getting screwed? He is gaining in signing bonus the exact amount he loses in base salary. More of his money just got guaranteed.

Which is why players are happy to do it. The dude just deposited half his base salary into the bank.

I don't understand? When a player restructures they convert their salary in to a signing bonus which they get immediately up front. In Andre's case he gets a $5.5 mil check today and still gets a salary of $5 million. Because of this the team reduces it's salary cap by the bonus amount and is able to spread the amount of the new signing bonus over the remaining years of the contract. How is this a bad thing for players involved?

It's a win/win, and improves the cap situation for preparing extensions for Cushing next year and Watt the following year.

This just shows how unselfish Andre is by agreeing to this contract. Man we have a bunch of stand up guys on this team. I think our teams character is head and shoulders above the rest of the teams in the nfl.

How is he being unselfish taking his 5 million now rather than later? LOL. Would you rather your boss just pay you your yearly salary now or pay your salary in payments? Keep in mind Andre doesn't need the 5 million. Uncle Bob has kept his plate full.

5 million a year to play a game, no players have been spoiled is the fact of the matter. The guys who make the cars they drive, homes they live in, food they eat are barely scrapping by. If not for the little guy like us the nfl couldnt pay their players a dime.

You have guys who work 100 hours a week to feed their family thats barely getting by, pretty sure AJ will be just fine

He is being unselfish by allowing the Texans to lower the salary cap for next year . This will allow a little wiggle room for Cush and Watt when they get their salaries.

I dunno about unselfish but there are financial advantages (and probably some disadvantages that are beyond me) to having a cool $5 mil to invest in one chunk rather than having it distributed over the whole season.

I'd love the chance to "wrestle" with that little problem.

I hate to say it. But I smell a troll. Maybe someone who is completely clueless to the business side of the NFL? More likely, a troll. Those are the 2 possibilities.
