Cards restructure Larry Fitzgerald, details and cap impact

I am linking this to show that other teams also have huge, nasty contracts and push the money off into the future. His cap hit in 2015 after this restructure will be $23.6M, ouch. Oh yeah, he is currently 30 years old. The story from NFP is the link, here I will also link to Spotrac showing the actual $'s in table form. http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/arizona-cardinals/larry-fitzgerald/

They put in a waiver claim on him last summer, but the Jags had a higher priority and got him instead.

Suh a problem in Lions locker room

I can't tell you how much this shocks me... ""The bottom line is he would just do things, whether it was showing up for a meeting late, or little different antics to kind of let the team know. ... it was more or less Suh just trying to show his dominance, his power," he said. "That he was basically untouchable and he could basically do what he wanted to do.""

Needless to say, the NCAA isn't happy with the college football players attempting to form a union. The labor board should hold a hearing in the next 10 days.

Interesting reading. I didn't realize the union was manipulating the cap every year.
