    There is a good diff between Danny's cap hit and what Welker will have. 2.5M can bring in a nice player. That might just be Wilson.

    This is pretty much what I expected to see.  It shows why Amendola was more attractive than Welker.  His per-year average cost is slightly less, but more significant, his salary cap cost this year and next is much lower.

    5 years 27.7 sounds a lot better then 5 years 31 mil but I still can't believe they paid that much for Arrington. In this market that's about starting money, I hope that isn't a sign that they think of him as a major part of the D

    Amendola's deal is basically 2 years, $11 million (plus up to $1m in per-game roster bonuses), and then Patriots can reassess.

    Re: Salaries of FA's/Salary Cap Charges

    With teams playing nickel 60% of the time, slot corner is basically a starter. And lets see what the salary breakdown actually is. 4th year could be 6-7M unguaranteed making the real deal more like 3/8M.

    It also seems that the CB market is shrinking in from both ends - range of salaries 4M-6M so far - rather than say 3M-8M.

    Still ESPN was predicting a 4/20 deal for him last week.

    I guess we did get a poor mans wes welker after all. 

    **************

    Updating a previous item, Danny Amendola's five-year Patriots contract is worth $27.7 million.

    The deal was originally reported at an agent-inflated $31 million. Amendola wound up getting less money per year than Wes Welker, which further supports the notion that the Patriots signed Amendola before Welker left for Denver. The Patriots also smartly tied up $1.72 million of the deal in per-game roster bonuses, meaning injury-prone Amendola will have to stay healthy to get that money. His signing bonus is $6 million. Amendola gets $10 million guaranteed.   Source: ESPN Boston

    Contract details for Washington, Jones March, 16, 2013 MAR 16 6:35 PM ET By Field Yates | ESPNBoston.com The Patriots came to terms with both running back/kick returner  Leon Washington and wide receiver  Donald Jones on Friday, and the contract information for the deal signed by each player has been passed along and highlighted below, per a league source. 

    Leon Washington 
    Maximum value: One-year, $1.2 million 
    Signing bonus: $360,000 

    2013 
    Base salary: $840,000 (non-guaranteed) 
    Cap charge: $1.2 million 

    Quick-hit: The Patriots were able to land a potential starting kickoff returner and rotational running back at a reasonable price in this deal. Washington could be called upon to serve in a role similar to  Danny Woodhead's from 2012 ( Shane Vereen's playing time figures to spike as well next season), and he adds a veteran presence to the locker room. 

    Donald Jones 
    Maximum value: Three-years, $4.155 million 
    Signing bonus: 0 

    2013 
    Base salary: $630,000 (non-guaranteed) 
    Reporting bonus: $200,000 
    Roster bonus: $235,000 
    Incentives/other terms: $125,000 
    Cap charge: $1.19 million 

    2014 
    Base salary: $730,000 (non-guaranteed) 
    Reporting bonus: $200,000 
    Roster bonus: $235,000 
    Incentives/other terms: $250,000 
    Cap charge: $1.415 million 

    2015 
    Base salary: $745,000 (non-guaranteed) 
    Reporting bonus: $200,000 
    Roster bonus: $235,000 
    Incentives/other charges: $375,000 
    Cap charge: $1.55 million 

    Quick-hit: The most noteworthy aspect to Jones' deal is that it does not include any guaranteed money up front. He didn't have a signing bonus, and none of his base salaries are guaranteed. Why might this be the case? One thought is that Jones finished the 2012 season on injured reserve for an undisclosed illness. He told the Buffalo News that he learned of a minor kidney issue during the 2010 NFL scouting combine, while adding that the illness that landed him on IR is something he has been dealing with for many years (link  HERE). We don't know for sure if his health played a part in the construction of his contract, but if so, the team has some protection based on the deal highlighted above.
