Tampa did a really good job of leveraging lack of state tax, as well as a want to build a winner in this deal. The deal is good, but what makes it a real steal is that they managed to get some savings on a bridge deal, and not get absolutely punished for it later. He took a 3 year bridge, became the highest scoring player at his position over that bridge, but came out of the deal without becoming the highest paid player at that position, even with the cap increasing quite a bit. This is a win for Tampa.
