Many players also make less money if they are put on the IR list, which is sometimes referred to as the reserve/injured list. Players often agree to contracts that include reduced salaries if they go on IR. Often called split salaries, they usually are between 40 percent and 70 percent of the players' normal salaries. Not all contracts include reduced salaries for players who are put on IR. The Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NFL and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) also sets minimum amounts for players' split salaries

So how does this Effect the W.Smith and Vilma Cap number i wonder

And i'd almost take that swap TheOak 3 for 1 not a bad trade off plus New Yorkers Additudes Suck

Those Terms and Conditions are rarely released much-less read by anyone other than the attorneys. Here is an example, in Tony Romo's contract there was a little clause that went over looked, basically stating he couldn't be franchised.... Dallas ate a huge bullet because of that.

We normally hear about a reduced salary after someone is already on it.

Re: Meachem breaking news

Can't say I was surprised Meach came back here; kinda figured it as soon as I heard SD cut him. Some guys just simply do better in certain systems, and Meach knew and played his role here before when his number got called. He's also cheaper this time around, so again this move don't surprise me.

And Chamberlain was brought in from STL for Spags' system...Spags' "Let's-just-have-literally-the-worst-defense-in-history" defensive system ain't here no more, Chamberlain ain't here no more. Good for me.

At least you don't have to worry about Meach chasing the highest bidder. I bet he's the happiest guy in town right now.

Re: Meachem breaking news

Eventhough, Meachem left New Orleans last season, he had his best game of the season in New Orleans. 3 catches/67 yards/ 2 TDs. There's no place like home.

Sometimes you can go home.
It is a good place to be...
