Re: Jairus Byrd is the word (Break Down)

I think the plan is too wait till next year to restructure Drews deal. His cap is still around not over $20ml yet, the jumps starts next year when I can see a extension to drop his cap

I personally do not see it. His Salary is 10.7m and his bonus prorat number for this season is 7.4m .. Basically 3mish to work with.



A restructure is essentially converting Sal to Bonus through extension.

Next season is a 10m difference between those two and you could cut his cap number by 5-6m easily with a restructure/extension.

6 years - 54m / 11m signing bonus / 28m guaranteed

2014 1.83m SB / 3m - Cap Hit 4.83m

2015 1.83m SB / 4m - Cap Hit 5.83m

2016 1.83m SB / 4m - Cap Hit 5.83m

2017 1.83m SB / 6m - Cap Hit 7.83m

2018 1.83m SB / 12m - Cap Hit 13.83m

2019 1.83m SB / 14m - Cap Hit 15.83m



At the end of 2017 he has been paid all of his 28m Guaranteed

In 2018 he is cut and we will have a dead money of 3.66m



This is just a basic view and does not cover the bonuses for roster, work out etc...

Didn't realize they would take the signing bonus over 5 instead of 6 years. I wasn't too far off, that Misc 6.1m in 2015 is curiously odd.

Not bad at all
Effectively a 6 year deal with options to cut after 3

looks like we are planning on keeping him for 4 years. 6th year he will be at the rip old age of 33. so 31 and kicked to curb sounds about right.

god only knows what the cap will look like by year 6. but most of the cap heavy senior citizens will be done with their contracts by 4 years any ways.
so who knows that maybe the going rate for a player that has 4 consecutive pro bowl years as saints safety under their belt

Structure wise given the the teams cap situation for the next three years that contract is set up nicely.

Re: Jairus Byrd is the word (Break Down)

You might like the looks of this contract but this is the kind of guy who will pull a no-show and demand more $$. Hopefully it's all different now but I doubt it.
