nah. much more important stuff to do.
Lets sign a couple veterans now, branch and an OG then BPA in the draft!!!!!
To recap the Jordan Gross deal. He's working under what is basically a 1-yr, $5.5M deal. Saves money under cap, but will be FA next year.
https://twitter.com/...970799229718529This is probably Gross' last year in the league, hopefully we'll make it a good one.
If Yasinskas has it right, it's 6.8 million off this year's cap and 4.8 million off next year.Almost 12 million saved in one fell swoop.
We should be talking to Beason and Williams next.
It's funny how some people were worried about the cap because of the Gettleman hire. And he's proved to be a genius compared to Hurney (who was considered a cap guy).
So many numbers being thrown around...I wonder if this causes any outstanding bonuses pre-extension to be amortized over the new contract length.Yas seems to think otherwise, the 4.9 cap hit he listed comes from the now $1 million base + $1 million signing bonus from previous deal + $2 million option bonus from previous deal + $0.9 million amortized from signing bonus on new deal.If my math is right...Gross' earnings this season drop from $8.7 million to $5.5 million, certainly commendable. All the while creating $6.8 million (11.7-4.9) in cap space this year.
is this 6.8mil for this year or both years combined?
