Not that this is the place for this, but BYS = Base Year Salary, as in 1st year salary. It has never referred to average amount.
To give a 4 year contract, the first year has to be 10M. That's all it is. You actually could start at 10M and decrease over the next 3, but it's hard to win an auction that way.
