Contract Notes

Jay Cutler signed a one year, $10 million contract with the Dolphins on August 6, 2017. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the contract has a base salary of $5 million and another $5 million in bonuses. Another $3 million is available as incentives. At the moment we dont know if there are or are not void years in the contract to lessen the cap charges in 2017 so we are factoring them in fully in 2017. We will update further when we can confirm those details. Cutler had previously been released by the Bears in March and had announced his retirement from football.
