Sanchez' contract was given to him as a cap move, with the intent to pay him long term at a discount if he continued to progress, but the team built an "out" in his contract after this year, but essentially pushed forward the cap number he would have counted against the cap last year to this coming year.
So? I don't remember you having a problem with Butt Fumble going around screwing 17 yr old girls when he got a contract extension.
