    It doesn't. It adds to it.</p>[/quote]

    it only adds to it if he has a bad year in which he wouldn't of hit the incentives that they turned into guaranteed money

    [/quote]the team would be doing that spreading the G money over the rest of his contract....I have not heard or seem anything that says Eli agreed to take that money in spread out increments by year or anything else

    they turned it into a signing bonus, which gets spread out through the rest of the contract, cap wise. I think he actually gets that money right now though

    [/quote] they are calling it guaranteed money but I agree he gets the money now ...that's the incentive for doing it.....could be wrong tho

    well its simple, he cut 7 mil off his number this year in money that wasn't guaranteed..

    Just like he did last year (whatever number he cut off his cap hit last year, lets just say 8 for arguments sake)

    He cut 8 off last year in unguaranteed money. So if its unguaranteed, that means it would of been performance based. So they changed it into a signing bonus, which i believe means he would of gotten an 8 million dollar check and it added 2 million a year to what his cap number is for the next 4 years

    After the year of production he had, I think it would of been safe to assume that he probably would of gotten that 8 mil..

    Now hes doing it again this year with 7 mil. He will probably got a 7mil check today and spread that 7 mil out over the next 3 and final years of his contract and it gets added to his cap number (but he was already paid that money, its just a cap number).

    All it did was guarantee unguaranteed money. So if Eli has a good year, he probably would of made this money anyway.

    And honestly, we don't even know what these incentives were. It could of just been for playing a full 16 - it could of been simple things that he def would of hit anyway, it could not of.

    But if he has a repeat performance of last year or better i think its safe to say he would of made that money anyawy. If he has a ****ty year, then yea, he got paid more than he would have
