On March 17, 2015 the New England Patriots signed Travaris Cadet.

March 21, 2015 update On March 19th ESPNBoston.Com's Mike Reiss reported that "Taking a closer look at the contract signed by Travaris Cadet, who will compete for a role as the New England Patriots' pass-catching running back:
Term: Two years
Total value: $1.715 million
Signing bonus: $65,000
2015 base salary: $660,000
2015 roster bonus: $50,000 (if on roster for first game)
2015 cap charge: $742,500
2016 base salary: $760,000
2016 roster bonus-1: $80,000 (if on roster fifth day of league year)
2016 roster bonus-2: $100,000 ($6,250 per game)
2016 cap charge: $966,250
"This is a modest deal that reflects Cadet as a player who is still looking to prove himself in the NFL. If Cadet does emerge, the Patriots will like the idea that there is a second year to the deal, when Cadet would otherwise be eligible for unrestricted free agency. In exchange for that, Cadet received bonus money he likely wouldn't have as part of a one-year deal. That is part of the trade-off/compromise that is often seen in deals like this."

My NOTES: Am pretty sure that Cadet's 2015 roster bonus is tied to making the 53-man roster once while on this contract. That is, if he could be placed on PUP or IR-Designated to Return at the start of the season and make the 53-man roster later and still get the $50,000 roster bonus.

On September 29th the Patriots released Travaris Cadet. His 2016 dead money equals $32,500.
