A closer look at the one-year contract signed by tight end Kellen Winslow:

Base salary: $825,000
Split salary (in event of injury): $393,000
Salary cap charge: $476,470

The contract also includes an injury waiver, which further reflects some of the concern teams have had with Winslow's knee.

The main takeaway from this contract is that the team has protection against injury and it qualifies for the veteran minimum benefit from a salary cap perspective. There was no signing bonus. These factors limit the risk for the team.
