Contract Notes

Teddy Bridgewater signed a one year, $6 million contract with the Jets on March 18, 2018. Bridgewater received a $500,000 signing bonus which is the guaranteed portion of the contract. He can earn an additional $9 million in incentives based on performance and playtime. Bridgewater was traded to the Saints on August 29, 2018 for a third round draft pick. The Saints take on the remaining $5 million of his contract.

According to ESPN's Field Yates the Saints converted $4.065 million of Bridgewater's contract to a signing bonus and added to voidable years to decrease Bridgewater's cap number by $2.71 million. If the Saints fail to sign Bridgewater to a new contract those savings will all count on the 2019 salary cap.
