Its not like ILB where you just read run/pass and react accordingly, or CB where you just follow your receiver or cover your area the best you can. Offensive line is about all 5 guys being on the same page against the ridiculous super athletic defenders and crazy blitz schemes in today's NFL.This cap situation, if managed correctly, will only be a 1 year problem.

There are more complexities of course.Tomlinson restructured after some hesitation in this way for example, but in the end he was cut before the contract ran out.
That is correct. 99% of the time a player wont even consider a restructure unless he gets something more out of it. Even moving the money to the back of the deal has complications because of the perceived interest lost, so more often teams ending up paying more or paying longer.
