    That was my thought exactly. These numbers really mean nothing for future seasons.

    I believe a lot of Weddle and Clary's money are being paid to them this year, that is why we have such little money available this year, but it will help in years to come

    Yep front loaded. Of the 20 million Clary gets, 40% of it is in this year alone. Which means his cap number goes down next year, and he's easier to cut or trade later on.
