So it's cap now in NFL instead of cap later in MLB. Potato PotahtoI'm not sure on Antonio Brown's contract status, but I do know that cutting an NFL player puts all of his remaining signing bonus money on the next salary cap year. That can be more or less than the guys salary, depending on the signing bonus, how long you're into the contract, and how they staged it, but all of the salary just goes away and you never have to pay it. Often you see stuff like roster bonuses, etc so that the bonus money gets spread out in stages on the contract. They're pretty creative. But no matter what, it's a lot better than paying Hanley and Pablo the full rest of their contracts. I'm sure MLB owners would prefer that system if they could get it.
