How to Read This Table
When I don't know the date when a roster bonus is due I presume it to have been due on March 12, 2013. I presume that the Patriots will pick up the player's 2013 option bonus so I include the option bonus proration in the total cap amount but until March 12 I do not include the option bonus in the Remaining Signing Bonus amount.

Danny Amendola - The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe blogged on March 19, 2013 that "In an effort to catch up after the wild flurry of movement late last week, here are Danny Amendola's contract details. It's a five-year, $31 million deal with $10 million guaranteed and a $6 million signing bonus. Two quick notes: First, Amendola can earn up to $500,000 in playing time bonuses each season, and that $2.5 million is factored into the $31 million. He will earn a $31,250 bonus for every game in which he is active, so the Patriots have protected themselves a bit in case of injury.

January 26, 2014 update On January 26, 2014 the Boston Globe's Ben Volin reported that "Danny Amendola may be fighting for a roster spot come March 11, the first day of the 2014 league year. Amendola signed a five-year deal worth $28.5 million ($10 million guaranteed last March), and $2 million of his $3 million base salary in 2014 becomes guaranteed if heís on the roster at 4 p.m. on March 11." Based on Ben Volin's report I created the 7 possible cap scenarios for his release or trade on my blog
March 5, 2014 update On March 5 Albert Breer tweeted "Interesting nuance I picked up talking to a number of cap folks today -- Impossible for New England to designate Danny Amendola a 6/1 cut. Based on his tweet I remove one cap scenario for his release or trade on my blog. There are now just 6.
March 9, 2014 update On March 9 ProFootballTalk.Com reported that "The trigger for $2 million in base salary becoming guaranteed as of the first day of the 2014 league year specifically was selected to ensure that Amendola, if cut, would be available on the first day of free agency. If not, the $2 million becomes fully guaranteed on the first day of the league year. A player canít be released with a post-June 1 designation until the league year begins. This means that the Pats canít cut Amendola with a post-June 1 designation without guaranteeing the $2 million. But the guarantee has offset language, which means that the Patriots would keep up to $2 million based on Amendolaís 2014 compensation elsewhere. The Patriots have four options: (1) cut Amendola before Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET, resulting in a $4.8 million cap charge in 2014; (2) cut Amendola after Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET with a post-June 1 designation, resulting in a $1.2 million cap charge in 2014 and $3.6 million in 2015, but guaranteeing up to $2 million in base salary if he doesnít land elsewhere; (3) trade Amendola before June 1, resulting in a $4.8 million cap charge in 2014; or (4) keep Amendola, paying him up to $3.5 million and carrying a $4.543 million cap number."
March 16, 2014 update Did some research on the salary offset issue. If the Patriots were to release Amendola in 2014 and he were to sign with another team, the Patriots would take a dead money hit of $2 million for the guaranteed salary and then would receive credit on their 2015 cap for the amount he received from the other team - maximum amount to be $2 million.
