    way cool, so how much does that free up this year. The cap quote surprised me as well, no raise?


    The official salary cap numbers for the 2012 season will be released by Friday, and the final number will be very similar to last season’s cap of around $120 million.

    I thought you couldn't restructure a contract back to back years. That's what McClain has been saying all off season

    This has to be at least the second time he's restructured, in addition to his extension/reworking.

    Anyone have a count on that?

    I don't think Andre re-structured before or after the lockout last year.

    I believe that was an extension with a crazy signing bonus, not a restructure. But I could be wrong on that.

    Awesome! This dude just keeps on showing what a team player he is, and making himself one of Houston's greatest athletes of all time. I hope this means Myers, and Mario will be Texans for the foreseeable future. :texflag:

    I hope they do. I believe Mario will sign back to win, not for the money.

    If we can afford him, and still sign our FAs next year, I would LOVE to have Mario on our team. It's just I've been under the impression we couldn't afford him.

    Thats why I stayed out of if we could/can't afford him, because I have no idea what contraacts have wiggle room, and which don't. Even capologist, who know alot, may not possible know the whole story.

    We can afford Mario along with everybody else we want to retain, just as we can have our cake and eat it to.

    AJ has 5 years left on his deal. 6.5/5 = 1.3 million cap hit in 2012; a savings of 5.2 million. That's a nice chunk of change to use to sign Myers, Mario or Manning...

    Yea, basically a new contract. When you restructure, the end dollar amounts stay the same. I believe Andre ended up getting more money with the extension
