That seems too good to be true. I mean if that's the case - this deal is actually fantastic. Assuming he plays next year. It's because of how the contract is structured. $58m gets paid this year as a signing bonus, it will get spread over the remaining 4 years of the contract, hence the $15m hit this year. Then after the Super Bowl in 2024 you'd have another option bonus for $45m, which would be spread over the remaining 3 years of the contract. So $15m (from option 1) + $15m (from option 2) = $32m cap hit in 2024. This is also why Rodgers dead cap hit is $45m if he only play 1 year and $60m if he plays 2 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
