From our cap guru aec4

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm posting this in it's own thread so you can all see. Of course, the data I have is not 100% perfect, but based on it, here is the cap situation.

Before 2004, the Jets and Pennington agreed on a 7 year, 64.2M contract. He was given an 18M signing bonus at that point, 2M roster bonus before 2005, and is due a 3M roster bonus before 2006. The 2M roster bonus was guaranteed, but the upcoming one is not. Here are his base salaries:

2004 1000000.00
2005 1000000.00
2006 6000000.00
2007 4000000.00
2008 6000000.00
2009 7000000.00
2010 6300000.00
2011 10172000.00

Since the CBA only allowed the signing bonus (18M) to be on the cap for 6 years (3M per year) because it needs to be renegotiated, here are the cap hits:

2004: 4M
2005: 6M (1M + 3M signing + 2M roster)
2006: 12M (6M + 3M signing + 3M roster)
2007: 7M
2008: 9M
2009: 10M
2010: 6.3M
2011: 10.172M

Now, the real question.. cutting him, or trading him...

If he's cut after the following seasons, prior to June 1, here are the details. I'm not sure of the date of the signing bonus in 2006, but most likely, it's in March, so he wouldn't be able to be cut after June 1, since w'ed have to pay the bonus..

2006: 0 net cap hit. He's going to cost 12M on the cap regardless. Why? If he's cut, all 12M accelerates.

2007: 9M accelerates, but 7M comes off, which means it costs us 2M to cut him. Having him on the team would save us 2M

2008: 6M accelerated, but 9M comes off, saving us 3M
2009: 3M accelerates, but 9M comes off, saving us 6M
2010: 6.3M comes off, 0 accelerates
2011: 10.172M comes off, 0 accelerates

In other words, if we do not cut him after this season, he's on the team thru the 2007 season

My gut feeling? The contract was set up to be restructured, and even a simple restructuring (which we may not want to do) which turns 9M owed to him into bonus (stretched over only 4 seasons since that's all that would be allowed without a CBA extension) would reduce CHad's cap # from 12M to 5.25M, saving 6.75M. I bet we ask him to take some cuts, or move some money to incentives based on playing time.


thanks ike for finding it and thanks ace4 for the info ;)

When the chubbies subside you will realize that Bolly is no more than a #3. He played well yesterday but he also missed some wide open receivers. He has won one game as a starter, that is what counts.

the mark of a really good QB to take it to the next level is their ability to pull out victories- many times when he and or the team really were outplayed the whole game.
Bollinger is a tough QB and has some mobility that helps but he IMO will never be a starter in the NFL
A decent reserve to fill in is what I see as his future- sorry jetstone just my opinion

we will see... hopefully your wrong for the Jets stake and bolly's sake
but hopefully we all can agree with this Brooks Bollinger is the best 3rd string QB in the NFL

Not a bad turn around.


Very impressive day considering that we threw the kitchen sink at him and he sat back with excellent composure ... better than super QB Brees last week. However, I would say that he wouldn't have gotten 300 yards if not for that bogus pass interference call on 4th down;) Still, he's the first quarterback to throw 300+ yards against us in about 45 straight games.

Anyone who doesn't give Brooks credit today is an idiot. Period.

I admitted I was wrong about Bollinger. I think some of you should as well.



Admit it! Idiots!
