Many media sites just report based on reports, not the official transaction wire. Once he's actually signed, it will be official.

Of course you’re right but to me CBSsports.com is a reputable site, that is usually dependable. For sure this may be another case of the media getting ahead of the story.

I’ll treat Walker as ‘reported signed’ and leave him off the 90 man roster for now.

Yes, so many are too sloppy and confuse agreed to terms with signed with team when writing these articles. If he signed officially we would have to release someone. With OTAs over I doubt they are making him rush to fly in same day.

If the player is public announcing the agreement, I don't have a problem news sites considering it official. Remember, there's a short list of people who pay that close of attention, and most of them are in this thread!

The mandatory mini camp is scheduled for June 11th thru June 13th. PJ Walker will probably sign off when he arrives this coming Monday / Tuesday. If he has already signed, his effective contract date could be June 10th or June 11th. Kind of a mini futures contract.

I don’t mind for the most part either. The only time I think it would be super beneficial to use proper terminology is in the legal tampering period. I’ve seen too many reported signings when in reality nobody can sign and some players have even changed their minds and went elsewhere.

In order to create a roster spot to sign Walker the team waived undrafted free agent defensive tackle Buddha Jones with an injury designation. As a result of the injury designation, should Jones clear waivers he will revert to injured reserve, where he will remain until he is recovered or until he is released with an injury settlement." 👉 https://www.fieldgulls.com/2024/6/1...aive-udfa-to-make-room-on-roster-buddha-jones"

Jones could be deemed healthy at some point, and then released with no obligation.

Since he'll likely go on IR, his salary will reduce from $795,000 to $470,000.

Thanks Jville your help here is always appreciated.

Thanks as well to Hawkstorian who knows the intricacies of the salary cap.

For me that cap reduction is news. Does that reduction happen with every contract or just base level contracts.

I wonder what percentage of team contracts have this clause in them, I had wondered if there were different pay rates for players on IR, so much about the money side of football I know little about.

Damar Hamlin's contract has a clause like that. He was supposed to get a 45% salary cut for having had a cardiac arrest on the job. However, the Bills and the league knew how bad that would look, so the Bills agreed to continue to pay him the full $48,529.41 for each game (that's $825,000 divided by 17) after his cardiac arrest instead of the $26,764.71 per game the you-can't-play-so-now-you're-screwed part of his contract would have paid him ($455,000 divided by 17).
