Game and performance bonuses fall into two categories.

LTBE (Likely to be earned) - Goes against the cap.
NLTBE (Not likely to be earned) - Does not go against the cap.

Re: John Clayton say saints interested in Brandon Browner

I'll see if I can dig it out.
The report reckons the cap figure is low.

Re: John Clayton say saints interested in Brandon Browner

Details on Darrelle Revis' contract*By Mike Reiss | March 13, 2014 12:35:38 PM PDT

An important wrinkle has been learned about the contractDarrelle Revis*has agreed to with the Patriots.*

It has widely been reported as a one-year, $12 million deal, which is accurate. Revis will earn $12 million this season.*

But for salary-cap accounting purposes, and to protect Revis from being assigned the franchise tag in 2015, the sides have added a second year to the pact in 2015 that would pay Revis $20 million and count $25 million against the salary cap.*

The $20 million is an astronomical figure, as is the $25 million cap charge. That makes it unlikely the Patriots would pay it, thus making Revis an unrestricted free agent in 2015 or one of the highest-paid players in football.*

The second year helps the Patriots spread out the salary-cap charges for Revis over two seasons instead of taking one $12 million salary-cap hit in 2014. Revis' cap charge for 2014 is now $7 million.*

Here is a breakdown of the deal for those into specifics:*

2014*
Cap value:*$7M*
Cash value:*$12M*
Signing bonus:*$10M*
Roster bonus:*$500K ($33.33K per game if on 46-man roster up to 15 games)*
Base salary:*$1.5M*

2015*
Cap value:*$25M*
Cash value:*$20M*
Roster bonus-1:*$12M (earned on April 1, 2015, if club exercises option prior to end of 2014 league year)*
Roster bonus-2:*$500,000 ($33.33K per game if on 46-man roster up to 15 games)*
Base salary:*$7.5M

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

i missed that sorry. but they still would end up with a major whole in the middle that makes all that money spent on CB a waste of time. teams will run on them just like last year. it will be interesting to see what happens. i will have to listen to talk radio here. it will be funny when the hard core boston fans go off with that accent.
There is a draft and we use it from time to time to fill a hole. Perhaps the Pats have that plan..

copy-cat league

Re: John Clayton say saints interested in Brandon Browner

Keep listening to Rappaport and Schefter... You will never get those precious minutes of your life back.

"'ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network tweeted news of the signing before Schefter pulled back his report and quoted Browner’s agent, Peter Scaffer, who said he was still negotiating with “four teams and we do not have a deal. We aren’t even close.”"

Albert Breer saying that Browner cancelled visit to Washington.

I think he ends up at Pats as the can pay that little bit more

Re: John Clayton say saints interested in Brandon Browner

I think if we'd signed him I just can't imagine being able to keep Jimmy. But Mickey has a knack for making it happen

Re: John Clayton say saints interested in Brandon Browner

If they structure the deal like Byrds but 6 years $60ml you are looking at a cap hit of $4.5ml plus the $2.8 free now leaves $5.3ml. He would have to be well under a $1ml in a cap hit in 2014 to work. Possible.

Re: John Clayton say saints interested in Brandon Browner

Negotiations also are occurring with the Saints and Raiders for Browner. While his four-game suspension to start the season could be regarded as an impediment, his availability for the offseason program, training camp, and the preseason allows him to be fully prepared for his return.
