What does it take to be an NFL player?
The NFL’s salary cap and salary-cap-exempt status has allowed teams to use non-guaranteed contracts to pay players on a guaranteed basis.
It’s something the league does as a way to protect players from being hurt or hurt badly.
For instance, the Saints signed Brandon Browner to a three-year deal worth $15.25 million, and he’ll be a free agent next summer.
Browner, who was a first-round pick in 2011, was a fourth-round draft pick in 2015.
He’s a player that can be used in the NFL in many different ways.
If you can get a contract for a third-round selection, you can use it to sign a fourth rounder, and you can even use the money to sign another third-rounder.
The Saints have made a habit of using the guaranteed money they receive in the draft on players that don’t have much of an impact on the team.
Browning’s deal is worth $1.4 million in 2018, $1 million in 2019 and $1,000,000 in 2020.
He’ll be 32 by the time the 2018 season starts.
The cap for the NFL is set at $152.1 million, but teams can use the savings they get from free agency and the NFL’s newly instituted “guarantee money” to sign players for a lower amount.
The average salary cap for a first-, second- and third-year player is $6.8 million, according to Spotrac.com.
The Saints used a combination of their 2017 first-rounder and 2019 second-rounder to sign Browner.
They also signed a second-round compensatory pick to the signing bonus to get the money from the 2017 first.
That’s what led to the contract being worth $3.3 million.
It will take a lot of cash to get a guy that’s only making $1-2 million a year, but the Saints used the guaranteed amount to sign him.
Browners salary cap hit in 2019 was $2.7 million, which would make him the Saints third-highest paid player behind Anthony Davis ($8.9 million) and Kenny Vaccaro ($8 million).
