    Vollmer Money: 4 yrs/17 mil - 8.5 guaranteed

    Could reach 27 total with escalators. I'm assuming those are durability based largely.

    Source: Comcast Sportsnet. Didn't see this anywhere here. Got a headache when I tried to read the 'Sebastian Vollmer' thread at the end.

    Seems a good contract for an excellent right tackle - when healthy.  Issue of course has been the back which the Pats seem to have addressed with the playing incentives.

    I too found the Sebastian Vollmer thread eventually unreadable.  A casualty of yet another flame war, I'm afraid.

    I skipped the Vollmer threat as well. It was getting off topic...

    Per Field Yates there is a 7 mil signing bonus, 7,75 mil in base salary, and 10 mil in incentives/roster bonuses.

    Most of the 10 mil (ie. 9 mil) come from playing time incentives, while 1 mil is a Pro Bowl bonus.

    I think this is a fair deal. Pretty high ceiling, but deals with his history of injuries. Glad to have him back.

    I read in another thread that they are around 14 mil below the cap before signing Vollmer. With him signed it will probably be around 10. Drafted players will take some, so realisticly the team is not going after any more "big" signings. Maybe either Abraham, Sanders or Edelman, no more than one of them IMO.

    Turns out the rest of the money is tied to him playing 80% or more of the offensive snaps. Very smart deal

    The playing time incentive is huge.

    Thanks for that info. This is a good deal for both IMO. The cap hit is low for an elite tackle, helps the Patriots to have him back and allows flexability to sign more players.  I like it.

    Incentives, by the way, are included in the current cap if they are considered likely to be met.  If they are considered unlikely, they aren't included in the current cap.  At the end of the year a "true up" is performed, and the next year's cap adjusted to account for incentives that were either counted but not met or uncounted and met.
