wow. i didn't see this coming. better than signing with an NFCS foe at least.

This is the first thing I thought. Lets be honest, you're getting up in age, you've been hurt, and you got a tonne of money. Nearly everyone would do the same thing rather than risk more injuries and pain and moving your whole family and learning a new team, etc etc.

Thanks for all your services, Mr. Gamble.

Agreed, I have a feeling he's sort of lost his love for the game(several years ago giving up the team with Clausen, and the last couple years not making the playoffs), and may be worried about having to rehab another injury. If he's been smart with his money, more power to him, although he may regret it one day.

will he still count next year as a lost free agent when they hand out compensatory picks?


He wouldn't have counted to begin with since he was CUT.

You never fail to underwhelm.

No.

Cut = retire. Same as far as cap hit.


Wrong again it accelerates the cap hit all the same from signing bonus, however he is still going to have DEAD money on all the remaining years of the contract that would not have counted had he retired.

I looked this up (talked with others) and this is incorrect.

Dead money would be the same either way.


I realized this it is due to the accelerated signing bonus, however had he retired instead of being cut we wouldn't have been on the hook for the portion of his guaranteed salary over the remainder of the contract.

What was the name of that retard from the Colts we signed in 2004? We gave him a decent sized contract then he retired in training camp and we were still on the hook for his signing bonus.



Good luck, Christopher.

No.

Question 1.12

What happens if a player is traded or retires?

Answer: We already know that if a player is waived on or before June 1, the remaining signing bonus that has not been included in salary “accelerates” and is included in that year’s team salary. Acceleration also occurs when a player is traded or waived and picked up by another team. The new team is not responsible for any of the original signing bonus. The team that waived or traded the player is responsible for the accelerated signing bonus (in the same manner as described above).

In most cases, if a player retires, the remaining signing bonus that has not been included in salary “accelerates” and is included in that year’s team salary. Thus, the team will take an immediate salary cap hit of the remaining signing bonus.

I'm pretty sure that's exactly what I said in the post you quoted.
