Default 2012 Contract Restructures/Changes

I figure we need a thread to talk about some of these. Lots make sense for teams up against the cap, while others are surprising in that a player is actually getting paid more. So let's start off with a shocker:


Quote:
Very quietly, the Atlanta Falcons have started freeing up salary-cap space. Considering the Falcons already were a good bit under the cap, this could be a sign theyíre gearing up for a big splurge in free agency.

Thereís been talk about them pursuing Houston defensive end Mario Williams. Ironically, one guy who would directly benefit from Williamsí presence has restructured his contract to give the Falcons more cap room.

Thatís cornerback Dunta Robinson. Earlier this week, he signed off on some tweaks to his contract that will save the Falcons $1.75 million in cap space this year. Robinson waived a $3 million option bonus that was about to come due and also agreed to lower his base salary for this year by $1 million.

But Robinson gets some benefits in return. His new $5 million base salary for this year has been fully guaranteed. The Falcons also increased Robinsonís 2013 base salary to $8 million from $7 million and his 2014 salary was raised from $9 million to $10 million. His base salary for 2015 was increased from $9.5 to $11.5 million.

There are potentially even bigger benefits for Robinson on the field if the Falcons add Williams or another strong pass rusher. Robinson played with Williams in Houston and he and the rest of Atlantaís secondary would benefit greatly from having an improved pass rush.

Default Re: 2012 Contract Restructures/Changes

I can't believe the Raiders are doubling down on Palmer. He better earn that money this year or they are screwed. They just guaranteed 11.7 million to him this year and spread it out over the last few years of the deal making it less likely they cut him in the future.


Quote:
On Thursday night, the Raiders announced that quarterback Carson Palmer had restructured his contract. The team offered no further details.

We ran the numbers based on a maximum reduction of his base salary and conversion of the balance to a guaranteed payment. That’s exactly what happened, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Palmer’s $12.5 million base salary was dropped to the minimum of $825,000 (his 2011 holdout kept him from accruing a 10th year, which kept his minimum salary from moving to $925,000), and Palmer received the difference now, as a guaranteed roster bonus. The amount then gets spread over the balance of the deal.

Bottom line? The move didn’t impact Palmer’s bottom line. He still is getting his money for 2012; he’s merely getting most of it now.
