  • If???

    Not sure the answers to this. Anyone know for sure?

    1) If Turley is indeed done forever, because of medical reasons, are the Rams responsible for his contract salary cap wise??

    2) If Marshall decides on his own to retire after this season, are the Rams responsible for that entire contract salary cap wise??

    Re: If???

    The general rule is that any bonus paid accelerates upon retirement. However, in certain cases (i.e. Barry Sanders), teams have been able to recoup some of the bonus, which is then creditted to their cap. I'm not sure whether its different for a player (such as, perhaps, Turley) who retires due to injury. There may be an opportunity for some kind of injury settlement to minimize the cap impact.

      Balzer on Tuley's cap money
      by RamWraith

      The Rams paid Turley $560,000 last season. That was his salary. Turley got $10 million to sign, and the Rams have consistently offered Pace more than that. But when the Postons were his agents, they were asking for $23 million guaranteed.

      Wohlabaugh is not on the Rams books, excet for accelerated bonus money. He was released last summer, and the Rams didn't have to pay him another dime.

      If Turley were cut, the Rams would owe him nothing. He has about $6.7 million of prorated bonus still to be charged against the cap. If he were released on or before June 1, all of that would go against the cap. If he was released after June 1, he would count about $1.67M this year and about $5M next year.

      If he never plays again, the Rams could conceivably file a grievance seeking the return of bonus money because Turley refused acceptable medical procedures to try and come back and play. If they were successful, they would get a salary-cap credit for the money, if had already gone against the cap.

      Kyle Turley cap implications
      by Guest
      Does anyone know the cap implications if turley retires? I have read that we would be in a position to ask for money back, which could reduce the cap burden if turley paid it. If he refused to do so, we could file a grievance.

      Assuming that the two sides dont reach an injury settlement, i would be very interested to know how bad the hit will be next year.

      Projected 2005 Salary Cap Figures

      One should also consider that if Pace is franchised again, that'll count for over $8 million against the cap....

      Word has it; Turley
      by RamWraith
      Scuttle butt around the net is that Turley took a physical yesterday for the team and failed, hence the reason will be for his cut today. This is good news for Rams fan, as it is much cheaper to pay him an injury settlement than his salary.

      Fred Miller

      Assuming Turley doesn't come back(seems doubtful to me)...What do you think about Fred Miller back in a Rams Uni...He's a decent Right Tackle, and already knows the system...Looks like he might be a cap casualty for the Titans this offseason. :ramlogo:
