Miguel: take note. AdamJT13 from kffl reports that the Pats pushed $2,866,666 from the 2008 cap to 2009 via Vince Redd. The way these deals normally work, for those interested, is to offer an in-season unlikely to be earned incentive bonus to some player. In this case, Redd might have received a bonus for leading the team in touchdowns or something. In-season unlikely to be earned bonuses count against your cap during that season, as I understand it. When they are not earned, they are credited against your cap the following year. The Pats did something similar last season. Miguel can provide a more accurate description if this isn't right. Minnesota and Philly have done it with big money over the past. Philly is up to $19mm in extra cap money - amazing. But, for the Pats, every little bit helps.
