What's crazy is that he goes back down to an affordable rate in 2014 and 2015.
I don't know if the Front Office did this to protect themselves or to potentially reward Zach for an assumed 2 great seasons or what. Should be interesting to see how it plays out with him though.
1 million is signing bonus, and over 3 million is other bonuses. That three million could be any assortment of attainable or unattainable money that may not make it to the cap hit.
If I am Zach I don't really want to redo my deal. It isn't his fault they made him block for two years.
