    Signing bonuses are good for the player and good for the cap, unless of course, you cut the player early.
    Thats Carlson's problem, obviously has all his upfront money in his back pocket which slows him down and removes his pass catching threat
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Yea, they probably should have paid him with bills rather than nickels.

    Signing bonuses look great for minimizing early year cap hits, but backfire when the player stinks it up.

    Leber was on the power trip this morning and they were talking contract differences between the NBA and the NFL. He mentioned that the only part of a NFL contract that is guaranteed is the signing bonus, and the rest of it means nothing unless you stay part of the team. You could be cut and that would end the contract.
