Default Our top 51 ?

This is the part of the season where our top 51 contracts have to be below the salary cap. We're allowed to extend our roster up to ninety some players right?

My question, If we were to sign someone like Kendrick Lewis & his salary is below the top 51, then he doesn't make the final 53, does he get paid at all? Does any of his contract count against our salary cap as dead money (as there is some guaranteed money)?

Default Re: Our top 51 ?

They receive any signing bonus and a per diem for offseason activities. So for training camp rookies will get about $900 and vets $1600 per week. It all goes on the cap at the end of the year reconciliation but the per diem won't play any significant role otherwise.

Default Re: Our top 51 ?

In the case of Lewis, he got $100K guaranteed so that part hits regardless. Base is $795k so he is well above the bottom of the Top 51 guys.

Right now I believe the bottom of the Top 51 cap hit is $495k, there about 8 guys at that cap number.
