At these numbers it is an excellent deal.

Cap hit for a potential starter/experienced backup < $2M

Easy contract to get out of next year, only $667K dead money if dumped after 1 year.

This contract allows you to draft or sign an ILB without worrying about the contract ahead of him, yet doesn't force you to overdraft one because you have no options.
