JR a tight wad?

34 posts in this topic

So even though someone like CJ will actually receive all that money up front, the cap hit is spread around however the deal is structured?

Exactly.

CJ could have signed a $76 million deal for 4 years, with $74 million paid up front and salaries each year of $500,000, and his cap hit would be $19 million each of the 4 years.

The cap hit from all signing bonus money, although payed upfront to the player, is divided up and spread evenly over every year for the life of the contract.

The only bad contract in that bunch in Dwills and he's probably my favorite player on the team

If by tight wad, you mean barely able to get under the cap every year, then yeah, JR is a tight wad.

Obviously he tanked the year before the lockout and it turns out it revitalized this team (new coach, franchise QB). The guy knows how to run a organization.
