These contract details all come from Jerome Simpson's favorite media guy, Tom Pelissero.
Henderson's contract is a two year deal worth a total of $4 mill. Pelissero says it has a $500,000 signing bonus with another $500,000 roster bonus due on March 20th.
The salaries per year break down like this—Henderson earns $950,000 this year and $1.95 million in 2014. There is a workout bonus and incentives for each year as well.
According to Pelissero, Henderson's cap number is $1.75 this year and $2.25 for 2014.
Both of which seem pretty reasonable.
Pelissero says Sanford is set to make $5 million on a two year contract with a base of $1.45 in 2013 and a base of $2.45 for 2014. Like Henderson, there is a $500,000 signing bonus as well as a $500,000 roster bonus due on March 20th.
He also has $50,000 in workout bonus' in both years. Sanford's cap hit, according to Pelissero, should be $2.25 million this year and $2.75 next year.
Both years are manageable.
For Loadholt's extension, Pelissero says the contract is worth $25 million over four years, with a $7 million dollar signing bonus.
Pelissero also pointed out that the "$6.25 million average would have exceeded the pay of any right tackle in the NFL last season except Dallas' Doug Free, a former left tackle whose deal averages $8 million".
Nice work if you can get it.
The base for 2013 is $2.9 million, increasing to $3.4 million in 2014, $4.4 million in 2015 and $5.4 million in 2016 (I will be shocked if he sees that last year). He also has $500,000 roster bonuses due each year as well as $100,000 workout bonuses.
This year's cap number is $4.75 million and Pelissero says it goes up $1 million dollar every year for the length of the contract.
So if we started with approximately $24 million in space, then subtract the $8.75 million dollar cap hit from these three contracts, that gives us approximately $15.25 million left to play with.
One would think plenty more money to work with.
Updated because I forgot to add in Felton's almost $3 million dollar cap hit—$2.5 to be exact—which leaves us at about $12.75 million, which doesn't include the cap hit for Simpson still to come.
