Report: Leroy Hill Reportedly Rejects Six Year, 36 Million Dollar Deal

It sounds exhorbinant, and perhaps it is too much, but there's a lot essential qualifiers to consider.

  • 36 million is probably the peak value of the contract.
  • It will be back-loaded and give Seattle short term cap relief
  • We don't know the guaranteed money
  • Six years from now, the salary cap will have expanded.

Hill is a very good player and worth this much on the open market. I was hoping for something around five, but this is realistic and will not cripple or even limit the franchise going forward.
