Charles needs a extension. Hohopefully we use some of that loot
Is there a way to reformat that so it is easier to read?
Also, Charles has a couple more years left on his contract. It would be smarter to wait until the offseason before his last year before giving him an extension. Otherwise, if he ends up getting injured before that, we end up owing him more $$ unnecessarily. But I agree, he is underpaid for his performance level.
12/11/2010: Signed a six-year, $27.97 million contract. The deal contains $13 million guaranteed, including an $8 million first-year roster bonus and $2 million of his second-year salary. Another $5 million is available through incentives. An annual $250,000 workout bonus is available in years two through six. 2013: $1.75 million, 2014: $2.25 million, 2015: $4.75 million, 2016: Free Agent.

That's what I thought. Like I said, if he is still producing in 2015, he should get another big payday. Unfortunately, the typical RB will start to break down by then.

I was shocked Charles agreed to the contract he accepted from Pioli.
How could Jackson's cap number be less than his salary? Your cap number is your salary plus roster bonuses plus prorated signing bonus. It can't be less. It can only be more.
I think the last column is the amount against this year's (2012-2013) cap.
