Also we can sign players and structure players contract how ever you meed too. What part about tjat does people not understand. Also we will be releasing other players.
That's how the cap works. Look at any player we sign. You do know how the cap and contracts work right.
We can sign Levitre to a 6 year 41 million contract with a 10 million signing bonus and 25 guaranteed.
First year salary can be 1 million and the signing bonus is prorated over 5 years. So in 2013 Levitre will only be a 3 million cap hit. In 2014 we will know our cap situation and can make his salary 4 million amd his cap hit will be 6 million. In 2015 we can make it 4 million salary again and be a 6 million cap hit. In 2016 his salary can be 6 million and will count 8 million against the cap. 2018 can be 7 Million salary and be 9 million against the cap. 2019 will be 9 million salary but no signing bonus proration. Now after 2016y all his guaranteed money is paid and can be cut in 2017 and only be a 4 million cap cut.
That's how contracts are dont in the NFL.
We can make room where we have 3 million on the cap.
