Trading / Contract change.

Recommended Posts

When a player signs a new contract, the guaranteed money on the first year is now considered a signing bonus, and is guaranteed on the team's salary cap for the first year of the contract. This means that if the player is then traded, the team he signed the contract with is on the hook for that signing bonus, but is not on the hook for anything past the first year.  The team receiving the player in the trade will not have to pay any of the guaranteed money the first year, only the salary portion. 

 

The team receiving the player in a trade may offer to take on a portion of the signing bonus, up to 50%, in part of the trade.

 

Example:
Brian Brown signs a 5 year, 100 million dollar contract with Miami during the 2021 offseason:

5 years // 100.0 million // 50.00% Guaranteed
G//10.0//10.0//10.0//10.0//10.0//Total:50.0
$//10.0//10.0//10.0//10.0//10.0//Total:50.0
Total//20.0//20.0//20.0//20.0//20.0//Total:100.0

and is immediately traded to the Bills.  Miami will be on the hook in 2021 for $10 million. The Bills would be on the hook for 10 million in salary for 2021 and the full amount for every other year.  Miami could make a deal for the bills to take on 5 million of the guaranteed money, in which case Miami would owe Brown 5 million on their cap in 2021, and the bills would owe 15 million (5 mil of which is guaranteed).

 

This does not apply to rookies.

 

This will take effect immediately during the 2021 offseason.

THIS DOESN'T APPLY TO EXTENSIONS ONLY EXPIRING CONTRACTS THAT ARE RENEWED DURING THE OFF SEASON

If a player is re-signed at midseason and is then traded during the offseason, is the team that trades him still responsible for his first year guaranteed money or are they off the hook because he wasn't "renewed during the off-season?" @alienufo

Those are extensions so they don't count for this

Just to be clear (talked to a couple people and we can't come to a consensus):

 

Example:
Brian Brown signs a 5 year, 100 million dollar contract with Miami during the 2021 MIDSEASON (2021 was the last year of his contract and Miami signed him during the midseason window)

5 years // 100.0 million // 50.00% Guaranteed
G//10.0//10.0//10.0//10.0//10.0//Total:50.0
$//10.0//10.0//10.0//10.0//10.0//Total:50.0
Total//20.0//20.0//20.0//20.0//20.0//Total:100.0

 

Miami trades Brian Brown to the Bills after the 2021 season.

 

Am I correct in thinking that the Dolphins would not owe Brian Brown any money and the Bills would pay all of his contract?

Miami trades Brian Brown to the Bills.

 

Am I correct in thinking that the Bills would pay all of his guaranteed+salary money and the Dolphins would not pay anything?

 

 

 

yes, because he signed an extension.  He did not have an expired contract when he signed.

the whole purpose of this is to curb sign-and-trade deals.  NOT make it easier for teams with cap issues to trade for players on the cheap.
