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.

2013 $405,000 $133,400 $538,400 $933,600 $533,600 $533,600 signing bonus. Since Harmon is not among the Top 51 cap hits his 2013 salary is currently not counting against the cap, therefore there would not be any cap savings in 2013 by waiving him. If cut, dead money hit in 2013 would be $133,400 and 2014 dead money hit would be $400,200.
2014 $495,000 $133,400 $5,500 $633,900 $500,500 $400,200 -$261,300 If cut in 2014, a player with a $495,000 salary would take his place in the Top 51.
2015 $585,000 $133,400 $6,000 $724,400 $591,000 $266,800 $457,600
2016 $675,000 $133,400 $6,000 $814,400 $681,000 $133,400 $681,000

Duron Harmon - ESPNBoston.Com's Mike Reiss blogged on May 15, 2013 "A closer look at the contracts signed by rookie safety Duron Harmon, veteran guard Tyronne Green, and rookie free-agent offensive lineman R.J. Mattes:

DURON HARMON
Term/total value: 4 years, $2,71 million
Signing bonus: $533,600

Base salaries:

Workout bonuses:

Cap charges:

QUICK-HIT THOUGHTS: Interesting to make the comparison to Steelers restricted free-agent receiver Emmanuel Sanders with this deal, because this is the draft slot that the Patriots would have surrendered if they landed Sanders. The Patriots signed Sanders to a one-year, $2.5 million offer sheet that was matched by the Steelers. This deal for Harmon is almost the same value, but it's four years vs. the one year. A good reflection on how a third-round pick can be one of the best economic values in football if a team hits on the pick."
