Including 2011 in the guaranteed money would be meaningless when the contract was signed in December of that year.
The remaining prorated signing bonus is 2.4M. If released as a June 1 player, the cap hit from the remaining prorated signing bonus would be:
They can't split the guaranteed base with a June 1 designation; therefore, adding in the 3M guaranteed base salary, you have:
If they could trade him, then the guaranteed base would go to the new team and his all of his remaining prorated signing bonus would accelerate into the 2013 cap. This would be:
The only reason the 2014 isn't guarnteed is because after 2013 all 8 million has been paid. 1.2 million left in guarntees and his salary is 3 million in 2013. simple math
where did you get this info because its wrong, You do not put what year is guaranteed and whats not. You guaranteeing 8 million then your first 8 million is all you get. It was an extension not a new contract so that counts in the overall contract. same with Church new contract. They took an extra 2 million hit this year after extending Church.
2011 year counted. He signed a 6 year deal, it was a 5 year extension.
see 2011 is part of the 6 years so it counts.
you can't get to his 25 million without adding 2011
8 million guaranteed- 4 million bonus= 4 million
2011 salary 1.8 million
2012 salary 1 million
2011 plus 2012= 2.8 million plus the 4 million = 6.8 million
8 million - 6.8 million= 1.2 million of guaranteed money left
prorated signing bonus has 2.4 million left
800,000 over the next three years
2.4 million plus 1.2 million =3.6 million if cut
