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

- 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.
