Packers' Big Contract Extensions Won't Put Strain On Salary Cap
The Green Bay Packers had been saving up to splurge on their own and that they did with lavish contract extensions for Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews.
The Packers will pay the quarterback and outside linebacker $55.5 million in signing bonus money alone with the new contract that were completed this month. But the deals are not going to cripple the team when it comes to the salary cap, not right away anyway, according to Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
According to the report, after Rodgers’ deal was calculate the team still has just more than $13.5 million in cap room for this season, way more than needed to sign the rookie class. Leftover cap money will be rolled into 2014 giving the club a small cushion to start with for next year.
