    I gave up years ago trying to figure out cap stuff. So is Gambo's 4.9 million number wrong?

    Breer is outlining the basic parameters of the deal and what JJ will pocket or potentially so.

    How the Cards choose to account for it under the cap is a separate issue.

    I want to know about the voidable years. We seem to prefer that as a way to spread the bonus out over more years than the actual contract. Like we did for Campbell's contract last year.

    So in short, it could be 4.5mm hit if the bonus is paid out in a smart way.

    It’s wrong but by how much I’m not sure.

    If Gambodoro is right about a $4.9M cap hit in 2021, and the other info here & elsewhere that lists $14.5M guaranteed and a $2.5M salary in 2021 are all correct, that implies a $12M signing bonus is being spread out over 5 years ($2.4M per year for the bonus, plus $2.5M salary in 2021). So, 3 voidable years.

    Not certain this is correct, just trying to make all the reported numbers make sense together.

    This certainly makes a lot of sense. Thanks Dave

    I recall a game he had a cast on one hand. He basically, threw the offensive linemen out of his way with one hand and sacked the QB. Just brute force.
