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.Is this Jonnus contract? Where did you find it?
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.
