Rodney Hudson Contract Details, Salary Cap Charges, Bonus Money, and Contract History | Over The Cap
Rodney Hudson contract and salary cap details, including signing bonus, guaranteed salary, dead money, roster bonuses, and contract history
The NFL's new league year kicks off on Wednesday, March 15, 2023. The Cards will likely release WR Robbie Anderson and his non-guaranteed $12 million salary well before that date, nearly doubling their available cap space to about $26 million.
Then the work begins, starting with how to deal with presumptive starting/unreliable center Rodney Hudson. You see, Rodney Hudson has the 12th-highest 2023 cap number on the team (just $4.8 million), but he's also due a $1 million roster bonus on March 21. If the Cards cut him before that date, they'll have to eat $5.28 million in accelerated cap charges. If they designate him a June 1 cut, they'll pay him $1 million for doing nothing (but clear an additional $2 million or so on the 2023 cap, moving the $3.8 million charge to 2024).
Monti needs to convince Hudson to officially retire before 3/21 and forego that bonus.
Also, Jordan Phillips is going to count almost $6 million on the 2023 cap because Steve Keim is a drunk idiot and a failure.
