3 More Sacks Nets Galette $6.5mm

Will you be rooting for or against Galette?

----------------------------
@MikeTriplett does the bonus junior galette may get effect next years salary cap?


@MikeTriplett: No, Junior Galette's bonus wonít start kicking in until 2016 if he earns it. But Iím glad you asked because Iíve been meaning to write about this as an intriguing side-note over the next two weeks.

Galette has nine sacks this season, and if he gets three more, heíll earn $6.5 million in future roster bonuses and escalators which are also tied to him being on the roster and/or playing a certain amount of snaps. Heíd get a $2.5 million roster bonus in 2016, a $1.5 million roster bonus in 2017, a $1.3 million escalator in 2018 and a $1.2 million escalator in 2019.

Itís an interesting clause because it gives Galette an incentive to go all-out for sacks over the past two games. I donít envision that being a big problem, since thatís Galetteís primary role anyway. But still, it points out the inherent flaw in putting individual-stat incentives into a playerís contract.

As for Galetteís upcoming cap costs, itís also worth pointing out that his 2015 cap figure will be greatly reduced in the spring. Right now heís scheduled to count $15.45 million against the Saintsí 2015 cap because of a guaranteed $12.5 million roster bonus. But that will almost certainly be converted into a signing bonus and spread out over the final five years of his deal, which will drop his 2015 cap hit to $5.45 million.

I would never root against anyone on our defense getting more sacks. I hope he gets more than 3.

Re: 3 More Sacks Nets Galette $6.5mm

I agree its his job to get sacks BUT putting in clauses like that is not a good idea. It leads to players going with mentality that means they chase the stats over the game. Say he needs one more sack in a game that the coach wants to rest him for the playoffs,or he has a injury and needs to sit out the week for the playoffs. Who isnt going to go chasing $6ml. I know i would

Considering we're gonna be using him as a situational pass rusher again because of his banged up knee of course I'll be rooting for him. How in the world could someone possibly NOT root for seeing Galette knock the snot out of Matty Melt?!

Yeah it's gonna get verrrrrry interesting if the Saints beat Atlanta with Junior getting 2 sacks, and then the coaches decide to rest him against Tampa Bay for the playoffs....

Seems like a terrible deal for the team to me. That's a huge bonus that seems unnecessary. The team has lost it's edge in negotiating contracts it seems to me.

Seems to me it may have been structured as a 6.5 million reduction in pay if he doesn't perform.

It could be looked at either way.

I hope he breaks Derrick Thomas's single game record right in front of me.
