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.

How to Read This Table
I presume it to have been due on the first day of the League Year. I presume that the Patriots will pick up the player's option bonus so I include the option bonus proration in the total cap amount but until the League Year begins I will not include the option bonus in the Remaining Signing Bonus amount.

$1.3 million in unspecified playtime incentives
On March 28 ESPNBoston's Field Yates reported that "As it turns out, Wendell's deal did in fact have a misprint in the NFLPA, as he does not have roster bonuses of up to $2 million each season. He has roster bonuses of up to $200,000 each season, which can be earned by being on the 46-man roster for each of the 16 regular-season games next year ($12,500 for each game).

With this detail ironed out, here's an updated look at the contract:

Overall terms: Two years, base value of $3.25 million, maximum value of $4.55 million ($850,000 guaranteed in a signing bonus)

Base salary: $1 million
Roster bonus: $200,000
Cap hit: $1.625 million

Base salary: $1 million
Roster bonus: $200,000
Playing-time incentives: Up to $1.3 million
Cap hit: $1.625 million (would increase up to $2.975 million if he hits all incentives)
