3) 2 year - $540,000
4) 3 year - $615,000
5) 4-6 year - $700,000
6) 7-9 year - $825,000
7) 10+ year - $925,000
2012 salaries are as follows:
Shayne Graham: 2012: $925,000
Bradie James: 2012: $825,000
Donnie Jones: 2012: $825,000
Alan Ball: 6/2/2012: Signed an undisclosed contract. (June 1st is cutoff date for comp picks)
Justin Forsett: 6/2/2012: Signed a one-year contract. (June 1st is cutoff date for comp picks)
Ryan Harris: 9/1/2012: Signed a one-year, $700,000 contract.
Signing bonuses can be up to 65k without effecting the comp picks.
Players over 10 years accrued no longer count against comp picks.
Players must sign for more than their veteran minimum to nullify other comp picks.
None of these guys will effect the comp picks we get in return. The only thing that will limit what the Texans receive will be the way they play for their new teams. Number of games started, total contract value, etc etc.
I'm always up for a cold one, regardless who pays
Appreciate your informed input on this subject. Maybe we can catch some Combine @ a mutually agreeable sports bar when the powers that be of the NFL make it official & work out a Texan "post combine" mock draft with all the picks in correct order?
