I will NOT pretend that this information will be 100% correct. The information on this site can ONLY be as accurate as the press reports that the information comes from.

I would like to thank Pats39, Peachhead, Jim S, Chris Matthews "CJ", Ian Logue, Andrew Brecher, Jocelyn Robichaud, Naren99, Ickster, Tom Sweeney, AdamJT13, Pats726, pats1, and Paul Dalrymple. Each of them have in their own way provided invaluable assistance and guidance. Please note that NONE of them are responsible for errors on this page.

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.
Please note that for some players not all of the listed numbers will add up to their reported cap number.

Stephen Gostkowski- From Mike Reiss' blog - "Kicker Stephen Gostkowski's four-year deal includes a $425,000 signing bonus and incentives that could increase the base salary in the final year"
December 1, 2007 update According to the USAToday NFL player salary database Gostkowski earned $5,640 in offseason workout bonus money, rather than the $6,720 that I previously had him earning.
November 16, 2008 update According to the USAToday salary database Gostkowkski earned $5,640 in offseason workout bonus money.
December 31, 2008 update I am presuming that Gostkowski has done enough to earn his escalator which will boost his 2009 salary from $530,000 to $1,010,000 (the lowest RFA tender).
March 4, 2010 update The Patriots made Gostkowski a RFA tender offer that makes his 2010 salary of $1,729,000.
September 19, 2010 update On August 26th the Boston Globe's Christopher Gasper tweeted "NFLPA has posted base salaries on Gostkowski extension: 2011 -- $1.7m, '12 --$2.1m, '13 -- $2.5m, '14 -- $2.9.m.".On August 25th the Boston Herald's Ian Rapoport blogged that "Iíve learned that Gostkowskiís contract has a total value of almost $14 million or an average of nearly $3.5 million per year. There is $5 million in guaranteed money. He will earn a salary of $1.759 million on a one-year deal in 2010, a bargain for a Pro Bowler"
November 14, 2010 update On November 12th the Boston Herald's Ian Rapaport blogged that "According to a league source, Gostkowski received a $4 million signing bonus that is fully guaranteed. And $1.1 million of his $1.7 million salary for 2011 is guaranteed for injury. That means, if it all goes wrong and he canít return, heís earned $5.1 million."
