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.

Marquice Cole Marquice Cole was signed to an one-year contract by the Pats on March 20, 2013. It included a $15,000 offseason workout bonus. On September 1 he was released.

September 7, 2013 update On September 2nd he was resigned. On September 4th ESPNBoston's Field Yates blogged that "Cole was re-signed by the team in free agency to a one-year, minimum-salary contract that paid him a base value of $715,000. Cole's newest deal, again for one year, will pay him $715,000 in base salary, but he now has the right to earn up to $1 million for the season through playing-time incentives. The following are his benchmarks:
25 percent of defensive snaps: $95,000
35 percent of defensive snaps: $190,000
45 percent of defensive snaps: $285,000

Cole played just fewer than 18 percent of the defensive snaps last season, and with a role that projects to be similar in 2013, it's unlikely he'll reach the 35- or 45-percent plateau. That being said, if an injury ahead of him on the depth chart takes place, the 25-percent marker is not out of reach, which would reward Cole handsomely.

October 1, 2013 update Cole was released by the Pats on September 27 and was re-signed on October 1. Cole did not lose any pay
October 8, 2013 update Cole was once again released on October 4 and re-signed on October 7. Cole once again did not lose any pay.
December 27, 2013 update Cole was released for the fourth time on December 26th. He will not lost out on any pay since he was on the roster 4PM Tuesday.
