Roster bonus works like this: If you are on the roster when the bonus comes due, you get it. Typically these are broken down by game though. For instance you might get a 10 million roster bonus, divided by 16 (because there are 16 games). If a player only plays 8 games then, he would only receive half that roster bonus.

Galette's roster bonus was fully guaranteed, meaning that even if he missed half the games he would still get the whole thing. But even then, he doesn't get any of it if he is not on the roster come March 12.

Hope this helps.
Makes absolutely no sense, guaranteed money is guaranteed money...
Junior Galette Contract Details and Salary Cap Charges | Over The Cap shows that Galette has 16.2 in dead money and cutting him would only save us 750,000... that still 15.something we will have to pay regardless where he is next year

After next year, he will have 2 million guaranteed left, and we will save more by cutting unless he restructures

OK then, tell you what. If you don't want to believe me, then don't! It makes no difference to me.

I would, however, suggest that you do some research on what a roster bonus is, how they are paid out, and figure it all out for yourself. It's really not that complicated once you get into it.

With your "theory" we could cut Drew because he has no roster bonus and not have to pay him the rest of his guaranteed...

ignorance...

I don't think you understand, but I wish you wouldn't be so hostile about this.

Galette's cap number is $15 million dollars. The roster bonus, $12.5 million, comprises most of that $15 million. Therefore, if he doesn't receive his roster bonus, the cap number is greatly reduced (keep in mind, I'm only talking about in terms of this year, not the dead money from other parts of the contract that gets carried into future years).

I should note that overthecap's projection are made with the assumption that the roster bonus will be paid out. If the player is cut before the bonus comes due their projections will change accordingly.

That's what happened with Lance Moore and Harper last year, for instance. Hence we are not carrying a huge dead money number for them (among others).

Your example about Brees is the exact reverse situation. So I don't know exactly where you are coming from here.

Re: Junior Galette Arrested

It goes without saying that all of this is extremely hypothetical since the charges don't seem big enough to justify Galette's release anyway. The point was only that, if Loomis chose to do so, it's not a huge tragedy as far as the salary cap is concerned. With that, I'll bow out of the "argument."

Re: Junior Galette Arrested

So he pushed her to the floor (we don't know why) and she grabbed a knife and threatened him. Is that what we know so far?

OMG he fights like a girl.

this is how this will go down i bet

Ok she admitted she grabbed a knife in a verbal argument.
he defends himself. scratching and clawing and pulls ear rings
then proceeded to sit on her to restrain her
he has a witness
besides the fact this is man vs woman equality - in a court of law
it is self defense

now lets see the facts as they unfold
