    I believe it depends on where you're picking and the number of picks you have.

    So is that bonus money that we put with our cap space, or is that just the amount that we are allowed to spend for this year?

    It's their cap cost for this year alone, I believe.

    Exactly Nick, it's their cap charge for THIS year only. We can pay them whatever we want starting next year.

    Case in point, Jake Long's contract is only $3 million on this year's cap, despite being over $10 million/year on average(I think, I actually forget what it was, wasn't it like $56M over 5 years?).
