Contract Notes

Buster Skrine signed a four year, $25 million contract with the Jets on March 10, 2015. Skrine received $13 million in guarantees, including a $3 million signing bonus. I am currently estimating that Skrine's roster bonus is prorated against the salary cap. Skrine restructured his contract in 2016 converting $3.75M of salary into a signing bonus. The Jets created $2.5M in cap space.
