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..

On March 17 ESPNBoston.Com's Mike Reiss and Field Yates reported that
"the Patriots signed cornerback Brandon Browner to a three-year contract, and here are the specific details, which add important context:

Total value: $12.35 million
Maximum value: $16.8 million
Signing bonus: $0

2014
Base: $1 million (guaranteed)
Offseason workout bonus: $250,000
Roster bonus: $500,000 for making the 53-man roster at any point during the season (just has to be on it for one day and he sees this)
Second roster bonus: $150,000 per game he's on the 46-man roster
Playtime incentives: Up to $1.25 million

2015

Second roster bonus: $100,000 per game he’s on the 46-man roster
Playtime incentives: Up to $500,000 ($250k for 75 percent playing time; another $250k for 85 percent playing time)

2016

Roster bonus: $2 million (90-man roster at start of league year)
Second roster bonus: $100,000 per game he’s on the 46…

QUICK-HIT THOUGHTS: From a team perspective, the guaranteed financial commitment is just $1 million (base salary for 2014). Everything else Browner earns will be based on performance and participation in the offseason program. A key marker in the contract is the $2 million roster/option bonus for Browner if he’s on the 90-man roster at the start of the 2015 league year. This contract is a bit different from the norm because of Browner's suspension, which, based on the language and clauses of the contract, was clearly a consideration in negotiating the deal."

Miguel's NOTES: The Patriots will receive a credit of $58,823.53 per game for the first four games missed by Brandon due to his upcoming suspension. On March 14th Tom Pelissero tweeted that "whatever Browner gets this year for a base salary, he only collects 9/17ths of his base salary (players get paid on the bye week)...#Patriots take 3/4ths on the cap." Browner played in 43.5% of the Seahawks' defensive snaps so it appears that his playing-time trigger exceeds 43.5%.

March 23, 2014 update On March 23 the Boston Globe's Ben Volin reported that "In 2014, Browner reportedly has a $1 million guaranteed salary, offseason workout bonus of $250,000, roster bonus of $500,000 for being on the 53-man roster any day of the season, a bonus of $9,375 for every game he’s on the active roster, and up to $1.25 million in incentives. Here is how to calculate Browner’s 2014 cap number, as explained to us by former agent JoelCorry, a cap expert for CBSSports.com and National Football Post:
Before the suspension, Browner will count $1.825 million against the cap — $1 million in base salary, $250,000 workout bonus, $500,000 roster bonus, and $75,000 of the roster bonus (since he played in only eight games last year). The incentives won’t hit his cap number until the end of the season. When the suspension takes effect, the Patriots will receive a cap credit of $235,294 — or 4/17ths of Browner’s base salary — making his cap number about $1.59 million. While Browner won’t earn paychecks for four games, the Patriots must still account for it on the salary cap.Overall, Browner can play 12 games, earn 9/17ths of his salary, and earn a maximum of $2.64 million in cash in 2014 — $529,411 in base salary, $250,000 workout bonus, $500,000 roster bonus, $112,500 in per-game bonuses, and $1.25 million in incentives.

March 25, 2014 update From the tweets from Tom Pelissero, Aaron Wilson, and Ben Volin himself it appears that Browner is due to get $150,000 per game that he is on the 46-man roster.
