The reason he was traded was because his contract was going to be $950k pa for the next 5 yrs. His contract had been re-negotiated and backended to fit in Beams etc.When did it become 950k pa, and how much could the Pies actually afford to load up this year?
Genuine questions, those 2 points are quite different to everything I had heard up until now.
So he was traded to the Doggies who will pay him the $650k pa over the next 5 yrs, while the Pies wear the $300k pa.
The Pies asked the question of Merret, but it didn't work out. I believe we have little salary cap in 2021 as the Pies had the opportunity to then pay a good portion of the $300k pa in 2021, so 2022 should provide more cap space.
