    So, let me see if I have this right for the salary cap hits:

    2009: $310,000 + $250,000 = $560,000
    2010: $395,000 + $285,000 + $305,000 = $985,000[?]
    2011: $480,000 + $305,000 = $785,000
    2012: $565,000 + $305,000 = $870,000

    I am guesstimating

    2009: $310,000 + $250,000 = $560,000
    2010: $395,000 + $305,000 = $700,000
    2011: $535,000 + $305,000 = $840,000
    2012: $675,000 + $305,000 = $980,000

    Then what happens to this:

    "There's another $285,000 in guaranteed money in the second year of the deal with the first-year salary guaranteed as well."

    It is part of his 2010 salary. This is a way to fluff up the deal by explicting listing part of his 2010 salary as being guaranteed when implicitly the entire amount is. That is, there is very little chance that the Pats will release Vollmer anytime during the 2010 season after paying his option bonus in March

    Please note that my guesstimates perfectly track the 25% rule.

    FWIW - I think that PFT is wrong about the maximum value. If the deal does include an escalator, it would most likely increase Vollmer's 2012 salary to $1.308 million, the lowest RFA tender for that year.

    With Vollmer' salaries now on the NFLPA site I am now guesstimating

    2009: $310,000 + $250,000 = $560,000
    2010: $395,000 + $305,000 = $700,000
    2011: $510,000 + $305,000 = $815,000
    2012: $650,000 + $305,000 = $955,000
