Finally saw Darren Fells' contract with the Lions, which is one year for $1 million. That includes a base salary of $700,000, a signing bonus of $100 and a roster bonus of $12,500 for every game he is on the 46-man roster with a maximum value of $200,000. Of that, only $175,000 would count against the cap so his 2017 cap hit is $975,000. This was provided by ESPN Stats & Info.

Manti Te'o's two-year deal with the Saints is worth up to $7 million, but it has a lot of playing-time incentives built in, perhaps because of his injury history. His $600,000 signing bonus is the only guarantee. He'll get another $350,000 roster bonus if he is on the roster on May 17, a $50,000 workout bonus, then another $150,000 roster bonus if he is on the 53-man roster for at least one game. His base salary is $850,000, and he gets another $31,250 for every game on the 46-man roster and up to $1 million in unspecified playing-time incentives. Te'o's 2017 salary-cap cost is $1.79 million.
