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.

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.

Rob Gronkowski - Unsigned 2010 draft picks are automatically tendered the rookie salary of $320,000.
July 26, 2010 update ProFootballTalk.Com's Mike Florio blogged that "Gronkowsi's deal pays a signing bonus of $1.76 million and a one-time incentive based on minimum playing time in the amount of $830,000. The contract includes minimum base salaries ($320,000 in 2010, $405,000 in 2011, $490,000 in 2012, and $575,00 in 2013). The 2013 base salary is fully guaranteed for skill and injury. Also, $255,000 of the 2012 salary is guaranteed. (Once the one-time incentive is earned, the base salaries become non-guaranteed.) In all, $2.59 million is guaranteed; the only question is whether it the $830,000 above and beyond the signing bonus comes from the one-timer or the guaranteed base salaries in 2012 and 2013. The deal also includes $30,000 in workout bonuses for the last two years, triggered if the one-time incentive is earned."
July 23, 2011 update Gronkowski's salary was at the minimum. Therefore, it was increased to $450,000 as part of the new CBA.
July 9, 2013 update ProFootballTalk.Com's Mike Florio blogged that Gronk's extension included "an $8 million signing bonus, a fully-guaranteed 2012 base salary of $540,000, a fully-guaranteed 2013 base salary of $630,000, and a fully-guaranteed base salary of $3.75 million in 2014. He also has workout bonuses of $30,000 in 2012 and 2013, and a guaranteed workout bonus of $250,000 in 2014. His $4.75 million base salary and $250,000 workout bonus for 2015 are guaranteed for injury prior to end of 2014 league year, then guaranteed fully. The guarantee on signing is $13.17 million, and another $5 million is guaranteed for injury." On June 12, 2012 the Boston Globe's Greg Bedard reported that the extension is the richest for a tight end at six years and $54 million. The final $37 million is contingent on the Patriots picking up a $10 million club option by the final day of the 2015 league year (Feb. 28, 2016). If the Patriots pass on the option, the team can?t place the franchise tag on him. Including the first two years at his rookie salaries, the total deal is eight years at $55.23 million ($6.9 million average). With the team option, it?s basically two four-year contracts: $18.23 million ($4.557 million average) through ?15; and then $37 million ($9.25 million average) from 2016-19....Gronkowski is guaranteed to make $12 million. Another $5 million in 2015 is guaranteed against injury, and then if he?s on the roster on the fifth day of the 2015 league year. The deal also includes per-game active roster bonuses totaling $500,000 in 2016 and 2017 ($31,250 per game), and $750,000 ($46,875 per game) in 2018-19....Gronkowski?s salary cap numbers from 2012-19 are: $2.66 million, $2.75 million, $5.4 million, $8.65 million, $6.65 million, $7 million, $11 million, and $12 million."
