People worried about Von are dumb. We control him for years, by which point Manning will have retired. 20 Million off the books--I wonder who will get it?
DT will get paid before Von. If you really want to project how many millions we will have to extend him, which is a fool's game, look to Champ, who after this season will have one year at 9 million left on his contract. His options will be to either play out that one year, or to work a new 2 or 3 year deal with a softer cap number in 2014 and more money overall. That's a lock to occur, unless we cut him outright (which would be awful).
