In the NFL, how do signing bonus' work. How much do they count against the cap?

To get around the cap, teams typically structure their player contracts in such a way that much of the money is designated as "signing bonuses" or "incentive clauses." A "signing bonus" does count toward the cap but is prorated over the length of the contract, although the entire bonus has typically been paid 'up front' to the player. When you read about a player and team agreeing to restructure a contract, it virtually always means that the player has agreed to convert at least a good part of his coming season's base salary into a signing bonus.

Does that make sense?

Anyways, also, congratulations on 9,000.

Thanks.

I thought thats how it worked but I wasn't 100%. But then why wouldn't teams sign every player to the league minimum, and just give out big bounses?

Because it looks better to give massive contracts rather than signing bonuses, lol. But you do make a good point, I'm sure some teams do with some of their more average players.
