a team lowers the player’s salary in exchange for turning it into a prorated bonus. The player gets that money up front while the Ravens spread the hit over the remaining years of the contract.

But it is a trick of the trade,“Like always, and everybody does it,Authentic Marcus Cannon Jersey, and it’s in our contract language.”
