Mark Sanchez's contract

20 posts in this topic

Is he "uncuttable"? I don't think so.

http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/new-york-jets/cap-hit/

 

I'm just posting this because I want to get some additional thoughts on the logistics of this. Whether Sanchez should be released or not isn't my point; he obviously isn't living up to his contract, and they never should have given him the deal they gave him. But there's a lot of pundits suggesting that his contract makes him untouchable, and I don't agree. It would be unpalatable, but it's doable, for sure.

 

The contract includes $20.5m guaranteed, between 2012 and 2013 (signing bonus of $8m, plus base salaries totaling $11.5m plus workout bonuses totaling $1m). His cap hit for 2013 is $12.9m. If they were to cut him prior to June 1, his accelerated cap hit would be $17.65m, and they could spread that out over the 2013 and 2014 cap.

 

However, if I understand this correctly, they could release him at the end of the 2012 season and absorb that entire accelerated cap hit into the 2012 cap. They have a total cap charge for 2012 of $96m. The cap is $120.6m. They would still be $6m shy of the cap. They have the space to do so. Of course, they'd still owe Sanchez $8.75m in guaranteed money, but it wouldn't count against the cap for 2013.

 

I think the Jets have bigger problems than Sanchez, and there aren't a lot of other options available at quarterback right now. I personally don't think they should release him. But if they did, there should be a way to avoid being strapped with a bad dead cap hit, I think.

I don't see how releasing him in 2012 would put it into the 2012 season. If so, that would be done quite often. 

 

To me their best hope would be having part of it in each 2012 & 2013 depending on if they treated it at as June 1 cut or not.

If that's accurate, then Spotrac is way off with its totals.

I've noticed that a few times before.  Each team does have their own cap # now with the carry over from year to year that can happen.  The money taken from Washington/Dallas pushed it to 120.6 starting point, and wasn't added to the 120.6 which some reptile liked to argue from time to time. 

 

I haven't dug that deep into it but at first glance a few weeks ago, I thought the # to cut him/trade him would result in around 18-19 million hit...  Obviously  if they were to trade him, they wouldn't owe any future base salaries....

If you release a player in 2012, the accelerated cap penalties are applied to the 2012 cap, no?

 

I guess not, though. Manning was released at the end of the 2011 league year, but his cap hit was applied to the 2012 cap.

If they release him right now it should/could(would have to read up on it more) . If the wait until after game 16 I don't see how it could... Manning would be an example of that.

And I guess you could do a lot worse than Mark Sanchez for one year at $8.75m ($8.25m base salary fully guaranteed, plus $500k workout bonus). Think any teams out there would give up a third rounder for a one year rental of Mark Sanchez with those numbers? Cardinals? Chiefs?

Interesting portion:

 

The Jets handled this Sanchez situation so badly I don’t know what the perception is right now. He was benched for a 7th round QB with almost no upside. It’s pretty well accepted that Greg McElroy is not auditioning for a job. I’m not sure that Sanchez is done for the year and I think there is a good chance he starts week 17 in Buffalo as this move is as much about hiding Mark from the fanbase as it is benching him for two meaningless games. But teams do agree he has been handled poorly and that the Jets have no skill around him. While I disagree with the latter statement, as long as people think otherwise it doesn’t make a difference what I or any other fan of the team thinks about him.

I have to assume he will get a contract somewhere. As an average “bust” that will receive a contract the guesstimate based on the multiplier is that a team would be willing to pay him $2.88 million dollars in 2013. If you want to believe that the 5th pick in the draft status helps him you could jump that number to $3.79 million. So I think that is the framework the Jets have to work with. In terms of guarantees I think Sanchez would need to give up his 500K workout bonus to get out of town and convert it to something like $31,250 per game on the active 46 man list. If he does that it lowers the guarantee for the receiving team by 500K and they can control that money. Leinart had a similar 1 year deal in Houston prior to his 2 year extension.

What would be the financial impact if the Jets had to eat the balance of the $8.75 million? On the low salary end a cap hit of $14.773 million and on the high salary end $13.863 million. Both options are better than the $17.153 hit they would take for releasing him outright. As for trade compensation they would get something in return. 7 of these players were trades and 2 were claimed so there is a market. Even Cade McNown was part of a package for a 6th round pick. So the Jets can probably receive a 6th round pick for Sanchez. Not much but better than nothing.

 

The Jets gave up a 4th and 6th for Tebow, and paid an extra $2.6m of salary advance, and they never intended to start him at quarterback. I think Sanchez has more trade value, despite the higher price tag.

 

End of the day, I doubt the Jets get rid of him. I was just wondering why everyone is saying he's uncuttable and wanted to explore the numbers a little more myself.

It would be tough just to cut that amount of money.I remember years ago the 49ers cut Garcia and had 10 million cap hit and would have had a 12 million or so cap hit to keep him. It didn't make sense. He wasn't horrible, but for whatever reason they sent him packing.

 

They have a mess. If they allow Sanchez agent to discuss a renegotiation with a potential team, they might be able to move him, it will still have some cap issues, but he will be out the door. 

 

I never understood the Tebow situation. I guess he thought he could go there and beat out Sanchez quicker than he could beat out Gabbert. I don't think Rex Ryan wanted anything to do with him, and whether the Tebow decision falls on the GM or the owner, I'm not sure, but it's quite clear Rex Ryan wants no part of him.   From what I understand, Denver would have had a slightly better draft pick if he was traded to Jacksonville but Elway gave Tebow the ability to choose between NY/Jax, which if true, that is something not many GM's would do for a player.

They are stupid to begin with by giving him that big contract after last year and expecting a "growing sprout" out of him. He was insured, big money to choke away the season. I'm sure he don't care either way, with the money he got from that, there is no way he's not satisfied.

I don't understand how a team gets to have a salary cap of $130 Mill.

 

The figure widely reported for all teams is $120 Mill.

 

Why do the Jets get an extra $10 Mill.

 

What am I not understanding about this???

Under the new CBA, teams can carry-over any unused space from the previous year. Sorta like whatever cell phone company lets you carry over your unused minutes. 1k minutes, use 450, you carry over 550 to the next month.

 

Here is an article about it, it's not the one I was looking for. There was one from around March that had a list of how much each team was able to use.  This is one of the reason some have felt it was odd to keep Freeney at the 19million cap hit. If they would have moved him before the season and didn't use the 14 million of savings, that money could have been carried over to next year.

 

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8016480/nfl-salary-cap-carryover-rewards-smart-management

 

Here is another article with examples for each team.

http://blogs.nfl.com/2012/03/30/salary-cap-situation-for-each-team/

 

The Colts carried over 2.5 million from 2011.

The Broncos for example carried over 26 million.

 

So basically teams can be thrifty one year and then have a windfall in the future.  

 

 “(v) Carrying Over Room. A Club may “carry over” Room from one League Year to the following League Year by submitting notice in writing signed by the owner to the NFL no later than fourteen (14) days prior to the start of the new League Year indicating the maximum amount of Room that the Club wishes to carry over. The NFL shall promptly provide a copy of any such notice to the NFLPA. The amount of Room carried over will be adjusted downward based on the final Room available after the year-end reconciliation.”

You, my friend, are a walking, talking encyclopedia of NFL knowledge!       :worthy:

 

Many thanks....

 

Not sure how I feel about this rule.    Not sure if I like it or not.    Maybe I will after I give it more thought....

 

But carrying over money to a salary cap seems odd at best to me....  

 

Either way,  the owners and players seem to be OK with it...      so,  what the Heck do I know?!?      :loco:

The CBA requires teams to spend a certain amount of money. The carryover is supposed to ensure that the money gets spent, eventually.

In years past teams would sometimes do a late season extension which would then filter some $ into that current year, which would make the player happy(new deal), and would maximize the cap in that year, and have the dollars working towards the future at the same time.

Very true.

      I don't disagree with that -- he's got the athletic ability and the size, but his hands and route-running are suspect.  Hopefully he can be coached to improve in those areas..... not to be a jerk, but this topic is about Tevaun Smith, hopefully we can discuss McKay in a future thread if the OP continues this type of thing.
    • Seen Any Good Movies Lately? Rental Or New Release...Share Your Insights/Reviews Please...
      I will return to football discussions soon I promise. I'm just in a cinematic frame of mind lately. I go thru phases like this where I need a break from the rigors of daily life so I immerse myself in movie mania to recharge the batteries. Part of it, is that I value what films have to say about the human condition, the struggles we encounter, & how situations get resolved in the end. Even bad pictures can sometimes have merit. I say that because by understanding a film's shortcomings a reviewer & their audience learns where a picture went off the rails, how mistakes should have been fixed, & what constitutes a tight & effective flick overall. Am I an established film critic myself? No, but I suppose on some subconscious level SW1 would secretly like to be, which explains why my critiques are so darn detailed & long I guess. Plus, my fondness for musicians probably explains why I always try to tie in a song or number that addresses either a central theme or a character's torment in some capacity. Movie scores is where we obtain our emotional intensity as an audience & why we care about certain characters too.    On Monday night, I watched 2014 desolate, end of the world picture called "The Rover" directed by David Michod. We are located somewhere in the Australian Outback after some kind of war has transpired. How many people perished or why we have no idea. All we know for sure is this: A lot of buildings appear deserted, guns, fuel, & food are the essential commodities for survival; cars & trucks still exist with a few paved roads to drive on are still around, & frontier vigilante western justice is the law of the land meaning if you want something that you don't own outright you take it by force if necessary.    We are never told why this society down under collapsed just that we enter this continental tale 10 yrs after civilization there imploded. 1 of the things that you will immediately notice about this picture is how quiet it is with very little dialog & virtually explosions in it unlike say 75-80% of films made in the United States. I like that about films shot outside North America: They tend to take you along for the ride riding shotgun with the man character in silence. They don't insult their audience with smart caboose sidekicks, know it heroes, & formulaic plot lines you can predict within the 1st 25 minutes. The director makes you feel like you are just as bewildered as the main character, which makes you pay closer attention to your surroundings & where in the hades you are going.    Plotline: The camera zooms in on Eric's [Guy Pearce] face as he sits in right handed driver's seat of his car. He looks confused like he's in a trance he can't get out of. He's a white guy with facial hair who appears to be in his early 30's. He kicks open his door after what feels like an eternity & walks across the street into a dimly light, nearly empty pub. He asks the bartender for a shot of whiskey, pays for it, & sits down on a stool. Something has got him preoccupied but we have no idea what that is. He slams down his booze still in a haze of uncertainty. Not far from his stool there is a tiny window on the adjacent wall.   All of a sudden we hear a truck engine fly down the road, roar around the corner spitting up gravel in it tires, & flip violently over several times end of end. What the hades? This truck must have a tremendous roll cage on it because it lands on it's wheels with no shattered glass or roof cave in on it. The driver slammed into a structure & can't get reverse to work properly. They need a new mode of transportation for a swift getaway. One of the men inside the truck named Henry [Scoot McNairy] is bleeding from the left side of abdomen. It's not from the capsized truck. It looks like a gun shot wound. Did they just rob a bank? Probably. Wait...This is a barren wasteland with sparse nomadic people around. I can't envision a bank with a lot of loot available still in operation. Where would criminals get access to large quantities of cash? Gas stations? Come on, this makes no sense. Who fires bullets at a getaway vehicle with no major businesses to steal money from around for miles man?    Well anyway, an elderly man in his late 50's or early 60's with silver rimmed glasses named Archie [David Field] spots Eric's parked car. He runs across the street, smashes the window on the driver's side with a gun handle, & he proceeds to manually hotwire Eric's car. His 2 bank heist buddies join him inside what looks like a blue Toyota Celica & zoom down the road with the accelerator pressed all the way to the floor. Eric realizes his car has been stolen so he jumps in their old vehicle, puts the gear shift in reverse, & he pursues them with a resolve & fervor of a guy with nothing to lose. Eric looks royally ticked off like a man who will move heaven & earth to get his ride back. Why's this car so darn important to him? He must be packing some precious cargo in that car somewhere or the vehicle has sentimental value to him for 1 reason or another.    Eric catches up to these 3 thugs who took his wheels without permission & after some chicken & mouse games; He almost chokes Archie with his bare hands until Henry hits him in the back of his skull with the stock of the firearm he was carrying on him. After Eric walks up & comes to, he walks into the only business around & asks patrons inside if they have seen 3 guys in a car say within the last 20 minutes. He is encouraged to speak to 80 yr old woman in the back room simply called "Grandma" [Gillian Jones]. Grandma isn't all there mentally. She seems feeble minded or strung out on drugs like an ancient madam of a remote brothel house for shady individuals with plenty of cash. Eric is able to convince a short, vertically challenged person to sell him a 9MM glock with the clip inside & then assassinate him with no trepidation at all. Clearly, Eric has had some level of precision military training. You can tell by the way he carries himself & the ease at which he can take a life so easily without any remorse or regret.    Eric strolls back into grandma's room demanding that she tell him everything she knows about the car thieves. He even * the hammer & points the barrel toward her. Grandma isn't scarred at all. She pushes the barrel away with her finger & Eric doesn't have the heart to drop her because the lights may be on but no ones home. Eric walks out to the truck & spots a bloody fingerprint on the door frame. It turns out that Henry threw his younger brother Reynolds [Robert Pattinson] out of the road when the robbers changed vehicles believing he was dead & gone. Rey, for short, wanted to know what this stranger named Eric was doing with his older sibling's truck. Eric knew that Rey was the key to getting his car back from the 3 thieves requiring Eric to get this young kid immediate medical attention before he bleeds out completely.    This 1 hour 40 minute picture drags a bit pacing wise as these 2 pinpoint the necessary doctor in this backwoods territory, she patches Rey up for no money or barter items [Not realistic or even plausible to me], & this physician has barely anything to eat, but out of the goodness of heart, she'll take in stray dogs as pets but not eat them herself even though every living citizen there suffers from starvation. [Yeah right. Whatever lady.]   We see that Eric, a man of very few words, knows how to return fire while under fire himself with ice in his veins & he able to make Rey see that his brother Henry who left him for dead on the road isn't worth his family loyalty in the end. Finally, after Eric is arrested by the Australian army for shooting at Rey his only friend in this wasteland & murdering a fellow officer, we are given a crucial piece of information: Eric found his wife cheating on him with another lover while he was away &, in the course of the crossfire that gunned down his wife & her lover, his precious dog got cut down in the aftermath. Eric wrapped his beloved canine in a blanket, set it gently in the truck, & decided to have a drink honoring the loss of his spouse & prized pooch in the same day. That's why he wanted his Toyota back--He loved that darn dog more than anything else in this world & no criminal bafoons were gonna take away his right to administer last rites to his cherished 4 legged friend darn it.    So let's review all the problems with this picture shall we...What bank are 3 fools gonna rob in the middle of nowhere with no thriving businesses around? What Dr. would perform major surgery on a stranger for no money for food or supplies? What Dr. would run a shelter for stray dogs with no food resources anywhere around for miles & not eat the animals with no unified economy up & running after a major war had taken place?    Oh yeah, I should mention that the 2 brothers Henry & Rey shot each other when Eric caught up to his car & inspected the building the 3 criminals were sleeping in.    I did like how quiet this film was though like a theatre play where Eric had to convey 90% of his emotions strictly by facial expressions alone. He's not a man you wanna cross & don't get between a man & his best friend or you won't live to talk about it. Is the "Rover" simply a bad day revenge story? Yes, I suppose it is. There's nothing wrong with simple themes in movies. I just hate films that drag for long sequences making their audience drowsy & take way to long to reach it's final conclusion. On some level, the director deserves credit for forcing the audience to see what Eric was so upset about once his car was stolen. I just expected a bigger character motivation I guess. I get the bond between owners & animal lovers & it's kind of touching to witness an owner finish the day just the way he wanted.    Let's roll with a C+ on "The Rover" because it took too long to drive the central thesis home: Forget the dog beware of the darn owner. If you hurt him; I hurt you. It's as simple as that.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
