It's funny, I always hated math in high school, never could get it, but for some reason with the salary cap, and just learning these numbers, its helped me. It's tough to start to keep track of players salaries.
Like Signing Bonuses are pro-rated, usually over the length of the contract, under the new cba the max it can be is over 5 years, so for Larry Fitzgerald, when he signed his 8yr deal, the signing bonus was over the first 5 seasons(2011-2015).
Roster Bonuses are a one time thing, you are on roster, you earn it that day, but there are contracts with multiple roster bonuses, sometimes 1 for each season.
Option bonuses like Peyton Mannings 28M is actually pro-rated if exercised.
Workout Bonuses, are for working out obviously lol. During OTA's. Some have timer triggers, like 95% of the workouts, etc...
Yeah. Is there any way we could create more cap room? It'd be really nice to sign 1 of the big name guys, they might put us over the top IMO. But if we keep our team together it seems like we simply can't do it. I dunno if we will keep the team together, I love your offseason but at the end of the day some teams might go crazy with offers or guys might decide to leave if money or playing time is more important. We'll see I guess. But this is my favorite offseason I've seen.
