A couple contract notes

Ahmad Brooks salary has decreased from $4.3M to $2.7M

Tarell Brown, for some reason has increased from $940K all the way to $2.925M

Donte Whitner hit an escalator for an extra $100K to $3.85M

All those are base salaries.
I hope we reign goldson this offseason

Brooks signed a deal with pretty aggressive accelerators. It appears he did not hit the sack numbers, so the pay for production contract was reduced. Whitner probably hit his pro bowl escalator for a cool 100K.
so we're basically owe 500K more now
wonder how much Alex would have made in escalators
Does Kap hit any escalators? or are all rookie contracts base only?

Good question. I thought rookie contracts are mostly guaranteed.
AB, can rookie contracts have escalators with the new rules?

A 2nd round QB will not have any escalators built into the contract most likely. It may be there for a top pick, but not a 2nd rounder.

The only ones would be the last season of contract, usually up to RFA offer amount that year, or $1.323M for 2013. 1st rounders don't get that anymore, use to back with old CBA. Some new escalators are here, http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/browns-quarterback-colt-mccoy-added-1-75-million-194838554--nfl.html

Whitner's was his pro bowl selection, unsure of Brown's, and I know why Brooks'.
