In response to Muzwell's comment:
Sometimes $16 mil is not really $16 mil because the last year or two don't really count. And you can minimize the cap hit in the first year or two with a longer deal. Talib's deal is favorable, but a one year deal counts 100% against the cap, no way to finagle that.
So Talib's cap hit is $5 mil whereas Arrington's might be a lot less than the $4 mil his deal averages. I don't know the particulars beyond 4 years, $16 mil, $8.5 mil guaranteed.
Exactly. They don't get that. Arrington is not in control of 50% of his deal. That's what his deal essentially means.
Why are some of our fans not getting these things at this point? BB isn't dumb.
i have not seen his deal posted yet, but
If they cut him after 2 years they will still have to pay him $8.5. That's over $4m per year. If they cut him after 3 years, they will have to pay him around $10.5-$11...anyway you look at it, his AAV will be around $3-4m per year.
Where do you get your info? What if he got...say...4 to sign, salaries of 2, 2, 2, 6? That would mean the first 3 years cost would be 10 total, 3.33 per year. Even less if he's working at a min salary any of those. That 4th year could be an obscene 8 or 9. Until we see a breakdown, none of us know.
Do The math. Even at your numbers, he got a $6m signing bonus. at your numbers if he is cut after 1 year he gets $8 million ($6 plus $2), if he is cut after 2 years he gets $10m ($6 plus $2 plus $2) ...like I said, with out seeing the numbs his AAV is between $3 and $4, closer to $4.
The guarantee seems to be $8.5....so the numbers seem to bear this out
