Why would the patriots pay a roster bonus then cut him?Cannon's situation is straightforward. Collect his roster bonus, and allow the patriots to cut him.
Say he is worth only $4M. Then the patriots would cut him, and he'll sign somewhere else for $4M.
If the patriots want to give to convert lots of his slary to bonus, and some to incentives, that fine. But that won't happen if the team thinks that he is worth as little as you say.
The bottom line is that the team might cut him before the roster bonus, but only if the negotiate a deal with someone else first. The next time is not clear. Even a draftee would not mean that he should be cut before camp.
