"3" out of our 5 Offensive Linemen have restructured their contracts to allow for more cap room. The latest to do so, is our Center, Lyle Sendlein.


Lyle Sendlein recently told Darren Urban that he recently had his contract restructured. Darren did a little digging and found out that Sendlein cut his 2012 salary from 2.4 Million to 700,000 Dollars. The 1.7 Million that was cut has now been turned into a bonus, to be distributed through the rest of his contract (2015). Sendleins cap hit would have been 3.25 Million but is now around 1.975 Million.

I'm sure we all remember fellow lineman and Left Guard Daryn Colledge did something similar a few weeks ago, lowering his salary from 3.8 Million to 700,000 dollars. He was due 3.1 Million but because of the restructuring that 3.1 will be distributed through out the rest of his contract, which also lasts till 2015.

Finally, and off of Contract Restructurings, the Cardinals 2009 jersey has made it to the Final Round of the Hall of Fame 'Jersey Showdown'. As of now 24% of the 10,598 people believe that our jersey is better than the Bills 1993 jersey. Lets get out there and vote, cause I personally... Believe that our 2009 jerseys are better.
