ARIZONA CARDINALS GM

The arizona cardinals officially pull their bid on joe flacco.

We would like to offer a 3 year 15 mil and a 5 mil signing bonus.

Base. Bonus. Total

Year 1. 5,000,000 2,500,000. 7,500,000

Year 2. 5,000,000 2,500,000. 7,500,000

Year 3. 5,000,000 0. 5,000,000

Total year 1. 7,500,000

Total deal 3 year 20,000,000

Was that supposed to be for Flacco?

Also, the trade bonus is split evenly across the number of years in the contract.

My mistake I will tender Velasco and Matthews..

Velasco will be tendered with a Level 2 tender: $1,750,000 tender for Right of first refusal and 2nd round draft pick.

Matthews will be tendered with a Level 1 tender: $1,000,000 tender for Right of first refusal and draft selection at the players original salary level.

Just to be clear, you could either tender or offer them deals. You don't have to tender just because they are RFAs. Tendering guarantees you will either retain them or get a draft pick. If you want to go with the lower offer, and risk it to FA, that's fine as well.

Just to clarify, are we supposed to be saving any cap space for signing rookies and stuff? Or is our allocated cap space exclusively for free agency?

cap space is exclusively for FA.

Seattle Seahawks

$26.75M CAP SPACE

Release

DE Chris Clemons

Dead $5,833,334 Base $8,166, 667M

Total savings $2,333,333M (75% $1.5M)

RB Leon Washington

Dead $750,000 Base $2,875,000M

Total savings $2,125,000M (75% $1.35M)

Clemons the 2012 sack leader for the Seahawks (11.5) is released to several reasons. The injury history coupled with the emergence of Bruce Irving. Clement was set to count $8.1M against the cap, the reason ending injury suffered in the Wildcard victory over the Redskins will have Clemons sidelined midway thru the 2013 season according to doctor reports.

Leon Washington was brought in to help take touches away from Lychn. Robert Turbin has passed him on the depth chart and Washington was bumped down to ST. Costing nearly $3M against the cap Leon Washington has been released to free agency to try out for another team in need of a short yardage GL back.

New Cap Space $29.5M

FREE AGENT BIDS

Offer DT Richard Seymour Oakland Raiders

Vet minimum as rotational player

1yr/$1M

Offer CB Eric Wright Tampa Bay Bucs

"Prove yourself deal"

2yrs/$3M

Year 1 $750,000 Bonus $250,000

Year 2 $1.50M Bonus $500,000

Cap Hit $1M

Offer S Charles Woodson Green Bay Packers

Vet minimum as rotational player

1yr/$1M

Offer DT Isaac Sopoaga San Francisco 49ers

4yr/$40M

Year 1/ $7,000,000 Bonus $1,000,000

Year 2/ $8,500,000 Bonus $500,000

Year 3/ $11,000,000 Bonus $0M

Year 4/ $12,000,000 Bonus $0M

Year 1 Cap Hit $8M

New Cap Space $17.5M

Need to fix the bid on Sopoaga. You pay 1 bonus (i.e. 4 million) and it is divided evenly over the entire deal (1 million per year). You can't pick pick a bonus for year 1 & a different bonus for year 2. Reason is that in the NFL bonuses are paid up front, but when figuring the cap hit, the amount of the bonus is spread over the course of the contract. So a 4 million dollar bonus when a player signs on counts 1 million towards his cap hit every season of the deal.

Also, you have more cap space than you realize. Check the IMD website.

The Green Bay Packers release:

Charles Woodson, CB/S, 9m cap hit with 500k in dead money, for a savings of 6.375m, rounded up to 6.5m

Leaving the team $31.5m under the cap

The Packers also offer RFA Sam Shields, Cb, a level 2 tender offer consisting of a 1.75m tender, Right of first Refusal, and a 2nd round pick

Woodson was release prior to the start of the game, therefore, in-game he was already off of your roster. Can't release him.

Lance Louis - 5 year 4.5 million. 1.0 mil signing bonus. 750k per year. Year one cap hit: 950k (rounds up to 1 mil)

Jonathan Scott - 5 year 4.5 million. 1.0 mil signing bonus. 750k per year. Year one cap hit: 950k (rounds up to 1 mil)

these deals can't happen under the rules we're working with. The bonus needs to be divisible by the years in the contract with the result being an even million, 250k, 500k or 750k. 5 year contract with 1m as the signing bonus would result in a 200k per year bonus, which isn't one of those numbers. You'd need to make it 1.25m, 2.5m, 3.75m, 5m, etc for a 5 year contract. If you want to keep it at 1 mil you need to change it to 1, 2 or 4 year offers.

20% of 4 is .8, not 1.

3. For any deal more than 1 year in length, if the base salary is 5 million or greater, the base salaries can only increase by a maximum of 20% per season. For 1st year base salaries lower than 5 million, the maximum increase per season can not exceed 1 million dollars.

This works yes?

under 5 million the increase allowed per year is 1 million. If that's not in the rules, it should have been. At 5 million is where the 20% rule should start.
