I'd like to see Cousins restructure to free up space.

I'd like to see you ask him that with a straight face. How is Cousins not playing up to his contract right now?

He will. Maybe not this year, but I bet he never finishes this contract before they extend him.

With $84M, on one player, something has to give. Look at Brady. How many times has he restructured for the betterment of his team.

Brady has made like $200M in his career (not to mention countless millions in endorsement deals). He's pretty much set for life. This is Kirk's first big payday. He's not a 10-year vet with multiple Super Bowl rings and just looking for championships. Heck, he took a few million less already to sign here than what the Jets were offering. It wouldn't shock me if he sees every dime. And he probably will. Which will be fine. The cap keeps going up anyway and we have the best cap guy in the business managing it.
