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.

QUICK-HIT THOUGHTS: One of the main thoughts on this deal is the financial benefit for a seventh-round draft choice vs. a rookie free agent. Beauharnais' signing bonus was greater than the guaranteed money given to the Patriots' top-earning rookie free agent T.J. Moe -- $47,592 to $30,000. So while there is something to be said for being undrafted and picking your destination, it usually still pays better financially to be a late seventh-rounder than a rookie free agent. Specific to the contract, there are split salaries in 2013 and 2014, so if Beauharnais lands on a reserve list in either season, his base salary would be reduced. In a technical note, the 2014 base salary is tied to Beauharnais having a credited season in 2013. " Please note that in Mike's original report that "signing bonuses" were "rounded out for cleaner math". I am using the exact figures.
