So what does this extension mean when it comes to Kupp’s per-year salary?

The extensions have lowered the cap hits this year.

But in 2023...Aaron Donald + Matthew Stafford + Jalen Ramsey + Leonard Floyd currently = $105M of 2023 salary cap.


Of course, they can keep restructuring/pushing out.


NFL may need to put limits on restructures, or require strict splits of salary+bonus to really put the cap back in Salary Cap.

That's all collectively bargained. Why would the players agree to this?

Because these mega deals affect the $3m players too and there are far more 3m players voting than 20m players....
And.....
Weed, huge bargaining chip and the league can pull a lot of concessions out of the nflpa to stop testing for it
