6 mil a year seems high for DT even though he has not had a QB for a few years.

 

 

A lot of it is incentives and very little of it is guaranteed.  If they cut him before the season starts, the Patriots will only have paid him $300,000.

AH...makes complete sense now. Should have looked it up. My mistake.

Seems like the kind of WR that could potentially thrive in NEP with Brady at the helm.

Story of every old/slow/possession type WR the Pats have ever signed since Wes Welker (or is it Troy Brown?).

DT's new contract

 

While there is a lot there in incentives (appears to be potential for $3M if he has 60 rec & 1200yds) it is not part of the nearly $3M contract, that is all from $1.2M salary and $1.5 roster bonus. Interesting note in the contract info, shows "Per Game Active Bonus: $87,875 ($1.406M)" which must be the bulk of that roster bonus.

 

But you are right if he doesn't make the team it costs them almost nothing, and no cap hit either ($150K signing bonus only).

He also has a reporting bonus of $150,000.  So if he gets cut at the 53 man cutdown, he'll have made $300,000.  But he might have to pass a physical in July to get the reporting bonus.  If he isn't running well by July, he might be cut before training camp even starts and will only get the signing bonus.  Both ASJ and Demaryius might be long shots to make the roster and Belichick might already know it.

Another body is all it is. Does it really matter which one in that offense?

What was strange for me was seeing the roster bonus done on a "per game active" basis, usually they take affect once the player makes the team, or is on the roster on day 1 of the season (March something).  If he was paid earlier, that would most likely count against the cap as well if he was released/traded. 

 

It is about as friendly a contract you can get for the team, and as you said very incentive laden for him (not just making the roster, but being active for games [$85K each] and hitting some milestones for serious $$).
