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 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.
Please note that for some players not all of the listed numbers will add up to their reported cap number.

Michael Hoomanawanui Michael Hoomanawanui restructured his RFA tender in late August/early September. He did not receive a signing bonus. On September 2nd ESPNBoston.Com's Field Yates reported that "Here are the new details:

Base salary - $630,000

Split - $358,000 (for full season if he lands on reserve list)


So if Hoomanawanui is on the team all season, and plays in 45 percent of the offensive snaps, he will earn $1 million ($630,000 base plus $370,000 in incentives). Hoomanawanui played 22.8 percent of the offensive snaps last season, according to ESPNBoston tracking."

Notes: NLTBE bonuses do not count against the cap unless achieved. Due to the signing bonus, Hoomanawanui should be expected to make the team out of camp."
