    It's just a base salary, there are many components to an NFL contract and he restructured salary into signing bonus for cap purposes. Don't worry his bottom line still puts him way up near the top of the list.

      He restructured. He's at 1.75 on the books. Like 8-9 million in guaranteed bonus money this year

      I wish my agent could get me 8 million automatically at the turn of the fiscal year...

        Re: Is this accurate? Why is Eli salary so low?

        Back when he signed his deal it was one of the richest for QBs and worth over a 100million. Sme on here thought he was overpaid and he got too much
        Football has been very, very good to us.
        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
        4-New York Giants!!!
        5-NE
        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

          As a matter of fact people on here including me have been posting thin threads that he should consider restructuring to be able to resign same key players over past several seasons

            So then bonuses don't count against the CAP? If that were true why don't all teams do that then the cap would never enter into the equation. Are you saying they are paying him an additional 9 mil this year under the table so to speak? That could lead to loss draft pics if GODell hears about that then.

              Guaranteed money does not count against the CAP. He is getting that $9 mil whether he takes a snap or decides to go hang out and get high with Jamarcus Russell and Ryan Leaf.

              Speaking of those 2, that is exactly why teams just don't throw around contracts with large amounts of guaranteed money. []

                Bonuses do count against the cap. They get spread out though in terms of cap hit. His bonus this year gets divided by the remaining years of the contract. Eli gets the whole bonus, but the salary cap only shows this year's portion.

                  Re: Is this accurate? Why is Eli salary so low?

                  Eli recently restructured his contract specifically to reduce his base salary and overall cap hit. Any upfront money does count towards the cap, but it can be spread out over the duration of the contract. The restructure saved 6.75 mil against the cap.

                      Re: Is this accurate? Why is Eli salary so low?

                      A couple years ago, Eli was signed to the richest contract in the NFL. He restructured to make it friendly for the team. He is still top 3 in the league.

Like 8-9 million in guaranteed bonus money this year I wish my agent could get me 8 million automatically at the turn of the fiscal year...[/quote] So then bonuses don't count against the CAP? If that were true why don't all teams do that then the cap would never enter into the equation. Are you saying they are paying him an additional 9 mil this year under the table so to speak? That could lead to loss draft pics if GODell hears about that then.[/quote]




                        Maybe a little bit of research would have helped before starting this thread???

                          Player salary is base + signing bonus, incentives, other bonuses.

                          Players can play with $0 base salaries and their money is completely in guaranteed signing bonus like Antrel Rolle in 2010. It all depends on how the team structures/re-structures the player's contract.

                          Rest assured, Eli Manning will start counting around $20 mil against the cap starting next year until his contract is finished.

                            When you hear things like this, makes you realize how incredibly hard it is to be a GM huh? The way a good GM can work numbers is mind blowing, I think.
