Teams will not be able to use the new "stretch" provision on players they acquire via the amnesty process. The stretch provision will allow teams to waive a player and stretch the annual cap hit well into the future.

For instance: If you release a player with two years and $20 million left on his deal, you could stretch the cap hit over five seasons ó twice the number of years left on his contract, plus one. The goal is to soften the short-term impact on cap flexibility so that teams will be more willing to waive players they donít want.
