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. Each of them have in their own way provided invaluable assistance and guidance. Please note that NONE of them are responsible for errors on this page.

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.

Chris McDonald On May 5th, 2013 ESPNBoston.Com's Field Yates blogged that Chris McDonald was signed to a three-year deal by the Patriots on May 3, 2013 and that Chris McDonald received a $5,000 signing bonus.
October 29, 2013 update On August 24th he reached an injury settlement with the Patriots. On October 27th the Boston Globe's Ben Volin reported that "Some injury settlements from training camp: WR Kamar Aiken ($35,648). DE Jermaine Cunningham ($37,059). TE Brandon Ford ($101,647). DE Justin Francis ($35,647). OL R.J. Mattes ($67,765). OL Chris McDonald ($67,765). DT Anthony Rashad-White ($135,529)" which means that the Patriots and Chris McDonald agreed that he should be paid four weeks salary.
