My guess there is a 5 mill convertible roster bonus in Sept, this way they keep money for this year, if they don't need it in Sept they put the 5 mill in this years cap and take 5 mill from the 17 mill due in 2014.
I don't know much about the way the cap works, but if I'm reading that Wallace contract correctly, he could be cut after year 3 without much of a cap hit right? It doesn't look like he has any gaurantees after the 3rd year besides the signing bonuses. So if he was cut after year 3 it would only be like a 4 million dollar cap hit, and 2 million after year 4? Can anybody confirm this?
If thats the case, then I would say thats a nice way to be structured for the dolphins, and very un Tanny like. Tanny always got stuck with backloaded guarantees didn't he? So he couldn't cut a player if they were underperforming.
Ireland has always done a good job with contract structures. People said we overpaid for Dansby but we only kept him for 3 years, maybe paid him about 7 million per, then got out of it when he got too expensive without taking a big hit.
But if somebody could confirm what I was saying about the Wallace contract I would appreciate it, because like I said, I'm not great with the cap, but it looks like after year 3 the dolphins could get out of hit without alot of dead money.
