    Last year Mankins at 32 had a 1st year cap hit of $1,030,000. Mankins had a $230,000 salary and a $350,000 roster bonus. Instead trying to make a guess at both figures, I decided to take a stab at one.

    But is there any reason that Jackson would get a higher salary than Maroney (anything to do with the contract length limits?)

    Yes. Plus, I think that Maroney will get a two-tiered bonus whil Jackson will get a single singing bonus.

    I thought the cap hits for the rookies would be a little higher. What escalation factor are you anticipating? As much as the increase in the total cap, given the big bump?

    The salary cap went from about $85.5mm 2005 to $102.5mm 2006, or 20%.

    Last year's #21, Matt Jones, had a contract with a $1.260 cap hit, by my recollection.

    You're projecting Maroney at $1.3mm. But if the rookie cap goes up by that same 20%, Maroney would be around $1.5mm.

    Similar questions on Jackson, who I thought would be at least $1mm.

    I doubt the rookie cap went up by 20%. I don't think it is a fixed percentage of the cap, and I think both the NFL and the NFLPA are trying to lower rookie salaries, so it is likely they rookie cap went up very little.

    Made a couple of changes. Structured Maroney's deal like Matt Jones's deal - no 1st year signing bonus. Structured Jackson's deal like Mankins' - some salary and some roster bonus and a signing bonus.

    Also added the Patriots' rookie pool number.

    Wow. That's quite a change in approach. That will create a much bigger difference between most rookie compensation deals - other than the top eight or ten - and most veterans.

    Just so I understand, Miguel, did the rookie minimum salaries go up by 5% (which is perfectly understandable) or did the entire allocated rookie caps go up by 5% - curtailing bonuses?

    Thanks.

    You are speaking to the converted. The salary cap goes up by 20%. The rookie pool goes up by 5%.


    The minimum salaries went up by $40,000 for every experience level.

    235,000 to 275,000

    The entire allocated rookie cap went up by 5% which will end up curtailing bonuses.

    One other question: if each rookie is guaranteed $275K in salary, how is the total salary for 10 players only $2,475K (i.e., $275K x 9)?

    7/11 Projection of the cap hits for the draft picks

    http://www.patscap.com/draftpicks.htm

    Updated to account for the Andrews signing.
    Lowered projections for Jackson, Mincey, and O'Callaghan in light of signings around their respective draft slots.
