As of March 17, the Patriots have six cornerbacks (Darrelle Revis, Kyle Arrington, Brandon Browner, Logan Ryan, Alfonzo Dennard, and Justin Green) signed for the 2014 season. Their respective cap numbers are $7,000,000, $3,625,000, $2,950,000, $655,813, $584,462, and $420,000.

As part of the new CBA there is a proven performance escalator for draft picks chosen in Round 3 through 7. Alfonzo Dennard is eligible for it in 2015. Logan Ryan is eligible for it in 2016 . An eligible player will qualify for the Proven Performance Escalator in his fourth League Year if: (1) he participated in a minimum of 35% of his Club’s offensive or defensive plays in any two of his previous three regular seasons; or (2) he participated in a “cumulative average” of at least 35% of his Club’s offensive or defensive plays over his previous three regular seasons. Since Dennard played in 62% of the defensive snaps in 2013 and in 53% of the defensive snaps in 2012 Alfonzo has qualified for the Proven Performance Escalator in 2015 increasing his 2015 salary to a projected $1,503,000 – an increase of over $800,000. Logan Ryan played in 52% of the defensive snaps in 2013.

While Justin Green was on the Patriots practice squad, he was being paid more (10K) than the minimum of 6K which indicates that he is highly regarded by the Patriots.
