Seriously though, according to this he's restructured his 2008 salary down from around $5 million to $730,000

NFL Players Association - Resources - Active Player Search

Haven't really had a chance to look at the overall cap ramifications. I'll leave that to the brainiacs
FINALLY someone signed for close the veteran's minimum. Whew, now that he's done it then everyone else will want to come here and do it too, right!?!

Ethan Albright was resigned as well, but has little to no effect on the cap. His cap number bumps another guy out of the top 51, and the difference between his cap figure and the 52nd player's is minimal.
2 quick questions.. Where does Brunell fit into all of this?

Also, you may not be able to answer but maybe someone can, what kind of tax ramifications do players face when doing this type of restructure? I'd think that going from a large salary to a large bonus would hurt them tax wise since bonuses are taxed at a much higher rate than salary.

Re: Jon Jansen Restructures

Can someone explain this better, that understands it. The way I understand it is Jansen just got several million dollars guarenteed, that will be spread out over the remaining life of his contract. Making his cap number huge next year and the subsequent years. Is that correct or did he say, my play has not been that great and I was injured, so for the good of the team I will give up millions?

Re: Jon Jansen Restructures

...and what will happen if they re-sign the player with the best punt return average (~35) in the NFL this year? (James Thrash.) (He didn't make it onto some lists, but he did on others.)

Brunell is a free agent, his contract is voiding. The team has no intentions to resign him.

Right now, the 51st man on our team counts $370K against the cap. For simplicity's sake, let's say we resign Rock for a one year deal worth $1.0 million. His signing would bump the 51st man out of the top 51, reducing our cap by $370K. He would then be added at $1.0 million. So the net effect of signing him, in this example, would be a hit of $630K.

Obviously if he signs with us for more money than that, the hit would be worse.

Rumors from JLC on his blog have indicated that the Skins may let him walk. Provided that they have a decent fallback option for kick returning and special teams, this could be a decent move. Our 3rd RB doesn't see the field often, so seeing him leave from a RB standpoint is really no big deal. But the staff will need to be cognizant of replacing his special teams leadership if they decide to let him go.
Do you agree with this move?

Certainly, the Skins can use the extra cap dollars right now as this will likely be used to release Lloyd with, but the trade off is $1 million more guarenteed to Jansen in each of the next 3 seasons (on top of the 2.25 million we were already giving him), and at least one more year of not being able to get away from him.

I guess were were going to handcuff ourselves somewhere, but I'm not sure that this was the right contract to do it with.

You're asking about a paycut in the bolded piece. To my knowledge, he did not take a paycut.

By my math, this restructure should have increased his 2009 cap figure by about $1.0 million or so.

Yeah I agree with it, primarily because I still think Jansen is a stud. People are quick to rag on him, but I don't see the logic.

Well if thats the case that is not bad, but he should take a paycut.

Re: Jon Jansen Restructures

I think we can expect Portis, Betts, and Samuels soon, and we'll be working with 6 million dollars under in free agency.

Can he be a stud two years from now, when we are guarenteeing him almost 3.5 million plus a 6 million base salary?

Maybe, but he's going to have to stay on the field andhealthy.

I would not caategorize Jansen as a stud anymore. His skills and technique have been on the decline for the last 3 years. He may be a better fit at Guard.
