Thats all well and good but Soliai is still going to get a sizeable contract so you are probably only talking about saving $4M or so a year IF you gave him every penny of that $20M in year 1.
Vince Wilfork got 5/40M. 8M average.
Pay him half in year one you are left with 4/20. 5M average.
You are only saving a whopping 3M a year.
When you start to break shit down its pretty sad what that number actually boils down to.
