i was just wondering if its standard practice that teams offer players "outside" money that stays off the cap radar? we have seen sj's contract and agree we got a pretty good deal, but we also see him in all the advertising on everything bills this season. so can teams keep guys that would normally be too much of a cap hit by saying heres a low contract for xxx million but we have another outside contract for yyy million to do advertising or whatever.
I understand players can have endorsment deals from anyone, im talking specifically from teams to keep thier salary cap low.
with guys like jerry jones walking around you have to wonder if some teams are way over the cap but a ton of it isnt on the books?
