Rookie Contract Question---It may sound silly


Recommended Posts

When a rookie, like Kerry Meier for example, signs a contract does this mean that he is then assured to make the 53 man roster? Or, does he still have to make it through the two cut-downs to receive his contract money?

Exactly how does that work? Is there language in the contract that guarantees him a base salary even if he gets cut before the regular season starts? and if he does get cut does the guaranteed money counts against our cap?

Sorry, I don't understand this stuff

He is guaranteed his signing bonus and a chance to make the team. If he's cut, all he keeps is the bonus and that money does count toward the cap.

Thanks JayOzOne----anyone know what the terms of the deal where?

I saw Kerry this summer at the open practices---I can't tell a thing about whether he is going to be an active receiver or a bench backup
