I don't think there is such a thing as an AutoVoiding Contract. Such a statement doesn't even compute in my brain.
Gross could void it if he chooses. That's what I have read twice now. Auto-Voiding just sounds backwards.
I know it sounds weird, but I don't put anything past anyone in the NFL. lol
I've seen a few different places reporting the 3 year extension though, so I'll go with that one which makes it a good deal.
Cap hits for the next three years on the deal are
2013 - 1 million base + 900k + bonuses from previous deal puts it around 4 million (saving the team 7 million)
2014 - 1 million base + 900k + 2 million roster + previous deal bonus money- 4.9 million cap hit
2015 - 1.9 million total cap hit
2016 - 1.9 million total cap hit
2017 - 1.9 million total cap hit
Saves the team roughly 12-14 million over the next two years.
His previous deal would have counted for a 3 million cap hit this season or a 1 million cap hit next season if cut either year as he didn't have a ton of bonus money floating in his contract.
