Contract Notes

Cam Jordan signed a five year, $55 million contract extension with the Saints on June 2, 2015. Jordan received a $16 million signing bonus and his $969,000 2015 base salary is also fully guaranteed. According to Nick Underhill of the Advocate, Jordan will receive a $6,000,000 roster bonus in 2016 and yearly roster bonuses of $500,000 in the final three years of the contract. Jordan is also eligible for $300,000 in per game roster bonuses in 2018 and $500,000 in per game bonuses from 2018 through 2020. His salaries in 2015 and 2016 are guaranteed for injury only and will become fully guaranteed if on the roster the 3rd day of that respective League Year. Another $1.25 million in sack incentives per year is available from 2017 to 2020. The Saints created $2.8 million in 2015 cap space with the extension.

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Saints converted Jordan's $6 million roster bonus into a signing bonus. The move saves $4.8 million in 2016 cap space and will add $1.2 million per year to his future cap charges. According to Evan Woodbury the Saints later converted $2.73 million of base salary to a signing bonus for cap relief. The move saved just under $2.2 million on the 2016 cap and increased future charges by $547,000.
