The following is the contract breakdown for receiver Brandon LaFell with the New England Patriots:

Term: 3 years
Signing bonus:
$3 million
Total value: $9 million

2014
Base: $800,000
Roster bonus: $200,000 (12,500 per game on the 46-man roster)
Cap: $2 million

2015
Base: $1.8 million
Roster bonus: $400,000 (25,000 per game on the 46-man roster)
Cap: $3.2 million

2016

QUICK-HIT THOUGHTS: The sole guarantee in the deal is the $3 million signing bonus. This is a straight-forward deal that LaFell should be able to earn in full if he performs.
