  Backus Backus total deal was 5 years at $6.573 mil. His SB was reported as $3.2 mil 

When his base pay is added to the SB, it comes up about $1.5 mil. Short 

I guestimate that he received a second S.B. in the amount of $1.26 million that is spread out over the last 4 years of his contract 

                       
                         
                         
                                             
  Ellis In early 2001, renegotiated contract to take $3.323 mil. from base pay into bonus 

In early 2002, renegotiated contract and took $2.5 mil. from base pay into a S.B.) 

In 2003, renegotiated contract to take $3.7 mil. from base pay and got a $1.0 mil. RB for 2003 

                       
                         
                         
                                             
  McDougle In 2001, he was paid approximately $850K over his base, which I assume is a RB 

Not sure if the RB all hit in 2001, or if spread out over all of 2001-2004, which I guessed 

                       
                         
                                             
  Porcher In 2002, he renegotiated moving salary into a SB of 3750000, allocated over 3 yrs since he addded a year to his deal 

In 2003, there is a $1.0 mil roster bonus, and in 2002/2003 there is a 25000 workout bonus

                       
                         
                                             
  Harrington His SB was $6.0 mil, but there is a $7.0 mil 2nd SB in 2003, plus several workout bonuses 

He also has about $7.55 mil in undisclosed performance bonuses 

                       
                         
                                             
  Stewart Renegotiated in 2002 and received a $2.0 mil SB, with a $250K roster bonus in 2003                         
                                             
  Beverly Roster Bonus due in March 7, 2003 in an unknown amount                         
                                             
  Bailey Has RB in 2007 of $95000 and another $2.0 mil. in incentives                         
                                             
  Rogers  Signing bonus: $9,100,000. Base salaries: $975,000 (2003); $1,189,000 (2004, plus $5,300,000 option bonus, includes escalators); $1,397,500 (2005, includes escalators) .  

$1,641,200 (2006, includes escalator and possible $2,000,000 roster bonus); $1,850,000 (2007, includes escalator and possible $2,000,000 roster bonus); $1,310,000 (2008); $1,210,000 (2009, voidable). 

Notes: If team exercises option bonus, base salaries reduced to $305,000 (2004); 514,100 (2005); 757,900 (2006); 966,600 (2007). Total: seven years, $20,438,600 or, if voided, six years, $19,560,000. Cap charge: $2,275,000 

                       
                         
                         
                                             
  Note per Tom Pinner's contract will receive payments based on $130,000 for the season, the lower value of his split contract.  

Elliss was scheduled to make $1 million in the first half of this season and the Lions will still pay him $500,000 of that.
