The restructuring does not add money to a playerís pocket, nor does it take any out of it. Itís simply an accounting tool to help teams with the cap.

People probably won't care since this only covers 1 year but moves like that just push more money...namely guaranteed money...into future years. Isn't really a healthy thing to do.

In my analysis, it's become pretty clear what Dallas is doing with their contracts under the new CBA. They are designating a year (normally the second) of the contract with an inflated salary that they know they will restructure. It gives them basically a sixth year of proration for signing bonuses and allows the proration to escalate once from it's original amount. To entice players to sign these deals, Dallas is sometimes guaranteeing the base salary of the second year.

Again, not a positive. Pushing guaranteed money into the future has serious drawbacks. The Rams cap guy, Kevin Demoff, has the opposite philosophy. He front loads contracts and puts the vast vast majority of the guaranteed money in the first couple years. It protects the Rams if the player declines or isn't playing up to the deal during the contract.

From what I've read, it's not jumping as much as you'd expect.

I'd probably make some tough choices with some pricey vets and try to trade a few...or cut them. I'd try to keep the money being push into the future to a minimum.
