Mark Sanchez's contract

20 posts in this topic

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

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.

    • Honestly,   I don't think the owners saw this coming.....   Hard for me to say one way or the other if the players did.....      Dunno.....  
    • Colts should be 2-2 after Sunday. 28-17 Colts. If they lose, Pagano should be fired on the spot and Grigson should join him.      
    • Great character guy, no question, full of Colts traits. I wish it would translate to his production on the field. I might be mistaken but with all the decade long complaints on how the Colts defense is soft by default... don't you think that our team would need at least a few guys who are not so nice in private but are cruel beasts on the field?
    • "So, who's the guy?...This is his problem too. You understand that right?...He's not the one who's pregnant. He'd be crapping his pants if he were. He'd find the money if he thought he was gonna swell up like a watermelon...Let's go see him."   "Why didn't you use a condom [Cam]? Or for humanity's sake get a vasectomy? Give us half the money. [Strikes Cam between his legs hard with a hockey stick]. You know, I liked your boyfriend. He's very special. Very charismatic."   "You know, you have a real anger problem. No, no, I don't. I have an caboose hole problem. When people are caboose holes to my granddaughter, I get angry."   "Hi sweetheart, you know there's a world out there that doesn't need to be filled with hate & narrow mindedness. [Pow, right in the kisser. A little girl punches Grandma Elle right in the eye].    I just saw a 2015 drama called "Grandma" about a young 18 yr old woman named Sage [Julia Garner] & her 70 something grandmother named Elle Reid [Lily Tomlin] who needs a huge favor. Sage desperately needs $630 as soon as possible. What for you ask? A car payment? A student loan payment? A gambling debt? Well, let's just say a medical procedure is required. Before I go any further, I must say this. This 1 hour & 19 minute feature film directed by Paul Weitz deals with the issue of terminating a pregnancy as a central theme in this flick.   Relax, I am not here to make any moral declarations about the right to an abortion in this country or speak for or against a woman's decision to bring a child into this world or not. All my audience needs to know is that this storyline revolves around a scared young woman & how her grandmother & mother help Sage raise the funds for the procedure, remind her that she's not going thru this ordeal alone, & come together during this crisis as a family making their bond of love stronger than ever.    Now, don't get it twisted. This movie isn't some cheesy Hallmark channel cinematic exercise in foolish sentimentality okay. As a matter of fact, the reason I like the picture is because the main characters are so messed up & dysfunctional overall. Where do I begin? Well, for starters, Elle is a PH.D. poetry professor living in California who just broke up with her girlfriend Olivia [Judy Greer] who is half her age & has crimson red hair. She actually loves Olivia but she's breaking up with her because Elle is fearful that she is developing deep feelings for her. The reason this new relationship petrifies her so much is because Elle just lost Violent, her romantic partner from cancer over a yr ago & she didn't ever expect to feel that way ever again so Elle is down on her luck & a little depressed right now.    Sage, her only grandchild with curly blond hair, knows on her front door & begs her for a hefty sum of cash in order to get an abortion at a nearby clinic at the end of business that very day. 1 major problem though: Grandma cut up all her credit cards & turned them into a decorative wind chime outside her front door. Wonderful just wonderful. What's there next move? They drive over to her boyfriend's place for a contribution for the procedure. Cam acts like a colossal jerk acting the the child might not be his & then grandma goes into protective bear mode, hits the fool in the family jewels, & takes $50 bucks & some pot from this guy. LOL! My kinda of grandma. Sweet!    Eventually, they go to a coffee shop & later a tattoo parlor where a black woman with a nose ring named Deathy [Laverne Cox] gives Elle an O ink job on her right shoulder & $60 dollars to help Sage out. Next, grandma tries to sell some 1st edition books from her home library at a local cafe. However, she ticks off the owner by telling her that she's a gorilla because she's so darn cheap & treats her employees like indentured servants. Yep, grandma's a real charmer who knows how to make friends & influence people that's for sure. LOL!    Grandma is running out of options now. She decides to drop by Karl's [Sam Elliot] place for $500 dollars. Did I mention that Karl was an old flame of Elle's who never got over the fact that she rejected her marriage proposal to her over 3 decades ago & that she abandoned him on his boat in the middle of the night? Details; details. Sam Elliot has 1 of the coolest deep voices ever heard on the silver screen BTW. He agrees to fork over the dough for 1 last passionate kiss from Elle. But, once he hears from Sage want the $500 is really for, he rejects the offer due to religious reasons.    Only 1 thing left to do: Visit the dragon lady Sage's mother Judy [Marcia Gay Harden] at work. Judy is stern & very demanding & she's not thrilled about the news that her baby is knocked up by the 'rodent' as she calls him. We see that Judy wears the pants in this family & that even King Kong & Godzilla would cower in her presence & run away whimpering like a wounded puppy. After some yelling, Judy gives her daughter the remaining funds for the procedure. Once at the clinic, a ProLife parent & her daughter harass Sage about committing murder. Grandma turns around imploring the little girl to be more understanding & boom the little menace hit Elle in the face. It's hilarious because for once in grandma's life she tried to be kind to a stranger & then she gets knocked on the pavement pretty good. I roared with laughter. The brief scene is an absolute riot because we don't expect that to happen at all.    The cool thing about this picture is that Judy shows up at the clinic to support her daughter & that this whole incident brings Sage, Grandma, & Judy much closer as a bullheaded family prompting Elle to tell Olivia she loved her & to reconnect as a same sex couple. I guess I just like Grandma Elle because she's very protective of her family especially Sage & if you hurt her in any way, she's gonna bleep you up & come down on you like a ton of bricks. There's actually a tenderness to this film just beneath the surface that is readily apparent in it's candid honesty & steadfast loyalty particularly at the clinic & just outside of it after the procedure is over. It just feels true, genuine, & authentic. Plus, Lily Tomlin's character is an ally we all wish we had in our corner 24/7.    Let's roll with a B+ here because at the end of the day when the crap hits the fan in this crazy world we all want a grandma who is always there for us no matter what.

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
