I dont think it would but could be wrong.
Yes. They would in effect be ripping up the old deal. With new deals, both players cap hits for this year could go up or down, comparatively to their current deals. DT's rookie contract 2014 pro-rated signing bonus ($1.756M) would have to be accounted for somewhere in the new deal, but the team can choose to push money wherever they want in the new contracts. Look at Kaepernick's new deal:
Kap's cap hit this year now includes part of his new signing bonus.
