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.

Matt Slater - Mike Reiss reported in his blog that the "contract signed by fifth-round draft choice Matthew Slater" was "a four-year deal, with a $175,000 signing bonus. The base salaries are:

The final year includes an escalator that could increase the value of the base salary based on playing time in the first three years of the deal."
June 26, 2010 update According to the performance-based program Slater earned $6,890 in 2009 offseason workout bonus money, rather than the $7,280 that I previously had him earning.
July 23, 2011 Slater's salary was at the minimum. Therefore, it was increased to $600,000 as part of the new CBA.
November 29, 2013 On March 16, 2012 ESPNBoston.Com's Mike Reiss reported that "Slater gets a $2 million signing bonus in his deal, with base salaries of $700,000 (2012), $1.2 million (2013) and $1.2 million (2014). Slater can earn workout bonuses of $100,000 each year of the deal. In all, it's a three-year, $5.4 million pact."
