Correct, it was technically a 4 year deal that voided to 3. So the $5M signing bonus was prorated $1.25M per season, with $1.25M of it scheduled to hit in the 4th year.

When the 4th year voided that $1.25M went to deadcap.

is it possible to extend that idea past 1 year? could you, in theory, sign a player to a 7 year deal that automatically voids after 4 years and spread the bonus over 7 years?

I honestly don't know. There may be a CBA rule that forbids it, no clue. I've never heard of that being done, but that's not to say it's not permitted.

they probably would have exploited it by now.

if it was a legit loophole, i'd sign kc to something like a $130m/800,000,000 year contract which automatically voids after 6 or 7 years, something like $1m in base salary, the rest in signing bonus spread over 800,000,000 years.

OMG, the dude is a hitter, the likes of which we haven't seen since Sean Taylor. I'd be stoked if we took him at 17 and took the best DT available in round 2.

Not to mention his Special Teams play. You could do an amazing highlights reel of his great plays on kick coverage alone.

BTW, T.J. Watt is also an outstanding ST player, so let's get him in the 3rd Round to play OLB.

We woud then be upgrading our defense and our ST's.

Re: Redskins Free Agent Signings

KC just cut DL Jaye Howard, probably to save about $4.0 million in cap space. the Redskins should give him a look.... if the price is right.

Jaye Howard, DE for the Kansas City Chiefs at NFL.com

Why hasn't Bruce brought Howard in for a look yet?

If we looked at Beanie Logan, Howard would make sense as a similar player at a much cheaper price.

I'm not sure that he's 100%....

So, I just saw that LeGarrette Blount is now a Free Agent. While rumor has it that the giants are interested, what do you think of signing him. That would free up the first round pick for Defense.

As much as I hate to give them credit, the Patriots are the masters of being able to get every drop out of someone. If he's gone from NE, he is most likely used up.

Help me here. He rushes for a league high 18 TDs last year, the most of any runner since 2009, and you're leaping to used up?

Could it be that he just wanted too much money maybe?

I mean Christ.
