    His 2006 salary used to be listed as $460,000. It is now listed as $712,000.

    It appears that Samuel reached the below escalator

    "Klecko can boost his 2006 salary from its scheduled $460,000 to one commensurate with the lower restricted free agent qualifying offer by playing 40 percent of the snaps in two seasons. It will escalate to a base salary equal to the middle (or first-round) qualifying offer if he plays 70 percent of the snaps in two of the first three seasons. Samuel has similar safeguards, although his benchmark for the second one is 75 percent of the snaps in two seasons."

    The question is whether all these escalator raises are already in Clayton's March 2nd numbers.

    Since Clayton wrote that "the current list of cap numbers does not include the salaries of restricted and exclusive-rights players", I now doubt that the raises are included in them because they were somewhat dependent on the RFA numbers (Samuel - to the lowest level, Koppen to the 1st round level).
