Is this Jonnus contract? Where did you find it?
It’s a projection of his contract to illustrate how cap numbers in the 1st year can be substantially lower than the AAV of these contracts.

I did a rough estimate that the cumulative AAV on the deals agreed to so far is around $70 million. With that figure, it is very conceivable that the cumulative cap charge could be less that $35 million leaving the Pats with roughly $30 million of cap space.

Just playing with figures, but it shows they should still have room to make more moves depending on their QB plans.

I get that Caserio has a NE connection, but one would think they would note that Rivers was a Ram last season, instead of implying he was signed away from the Pats.

I think the point they want to make is that Caserio was involved in the evaluation process that resulted in us picking Rivers. So Caserio is just plucking together some players he thought highly off but that failed for whatever reasons.

In other organizations you'd say that Caserio as GM picked him.

I’m hoping he remembers the lesson of KVN in this decision. It seems like Brian Flores is a fickle guy. 3 OCs in 3 seasons.
Don't be overpaid in a year where the league's cap takes a huge hit because of an unforeseen pandemic?

I have them a bit lower - dont see them extremely backloading - not what they need or normally do - id guess they'd prefer flexibility for possible restructures later..

In any case agreed that theres plenty of cap left..

The FRG has a little ****
Bunch of teams probably focusing on freeing up cap space or getting below the cap with releases, restructures and extensions before tomorrow's deadline. More of these type of deals today than new contracts is likely.

They may extreme backload this year to fit in more players and account for future cap increases being larger than normal (because this years is so low).
