Salary Cap Breakdown of The Baltimore Ravens Rookie Contracts

Posted in Salary Cap
5+ Comments Brian says Yes, it is. And $75,146 + $420,000 = $495,146, which is his 2014 Cap number.

With the advent of the new rookie wage scale contained in the NFL’s 2011 CBA, much of the mystery of rookie contracts have been removed. With the new system largely being a slotted system, signings are happening much quicker and holdouts are few and far in between.

Also, with the overall league Salary Cap having increased at such a minimal case, players are receiving the same Signing Bonus as the player taken with the same pick in the prior year’s draft.

The following is a breakdown of the contracts of the Ravens’ 2014 draft class (there is a little leeway in the base salaries of the top3 picks, so while the total value is unlikely to change, the breakdown of the base salaries is still TBD):

FIRST ROUND: LB CJ Mosley

First Round Pick, CJ Mosley, will sign a 4-year deal worth $8,787,996, with a Signing Bonus of $4,711,272. The terms of the CBA allow teams a 5th Year Option for 1st round picks to be exercised by early May of the players 4th year.

Brian ,this article rookie bonuses areentirely different than the recent article you wrote.Plaes explain. For instance; the firts article saidTE Gilmore would ge t$126,504 bonus, this one you say he got $606,376. Bret Urban would get $ 75,146 this one you say he really got $ 300,584. Does that me this bonus is averag eof all 4 years amount and all got paid this year?

The prior article dealt with just their 2014 Cap numbers with regard to the Rookie Pool. This article is their entire contracts. You will note that the 2014 Cap numbers in each article are the same. When a player gets a Signing bonus, the bonus counts against the Cap each year of the deal, so the bonus is divided by the number of years of the contract (up to 5 max) and count that amount each year. That's the Bonus proration from the prior article. So, for instance for Urban, the $75,146 in the prior article is the bonus proration from his Bonus, which is 1/4 of the Bonus of $300,584 from above. Also, Gillmore's $126,504 bonus proration from the prior article is 1/4 of his bonus of $300,584 bonus from above (you mistakenly wrote Brooks' bonus above).
