The Patriots traded a 2016 5th round draft pick to the Houston Texans for Keshawn Martin and the Texans' 2016 6th round draft pick.

On January 16, 2016 ESPNBoston.Com's Mike Reiss blogged that "the 5-foot-11, 194-pound Martin receives a $600,000 signing bonus, with base salaries of $850,000 in 2016 and $1 million in 2017. He has $25,000 workout bonuses in 2016 and 2017, and the pact includes $200,000 of per-game roster bonuses in each season. There is a $100,000 roster bonus due on the fifth day of the 2017 league year, $750,000 in incentives in both seasons (based on receptions), and a $200,000 escalator that could increase his 2017 base salary based on receptions."

A call for a donation

A long-time family friend, my youngest sister's best friend, is on the board of directors of a soup kitchen and food pantry in Malden, Massachusetts that provided in 2015 the equivalent of 1,030,000 meals to hungry, homeless and isolated people. I am asking that if you have found my salary cap pages useful that if you are able to do so, please make a donation to the Bread of Life soup kitchen/food pantry.

I am hoping to raise five thousand dollars by the time the Patriots win their 5th Super Bowl. Please mention this website by typing in Patscap's Drive for Five in the Purpose Field.
You can have a portion of your Amazon.Com purchases donated to the Bread of Life.
