    Wait hold on where is Kansas City getting all this money from?

    Ok something does not seem right they just signed Patrick Mahomes to a 10 yr $500 million dollar deal then today signed Chris Jones for 4 yrs at $85 million but they only have $6.2 million left in cap space. Now I don't know if that $6.2 million was after they signed Mahomes or after they signed Jones. So where in the hell are they getting all this money from? How does this make any sense?

    Jones was already tagged and accounted for. Mahomes still has a rookie contract price for this year.

    Contracts can be structured in a way that money that is paid out this year is accounted for under the salary cap in later years.

    What happened with ol' Tommy.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/patriot...alary-cap/amp/

    "New England gave Brady a $20.25 million bonus in 2019, and the void years allowed the cap hits to be spread out. In 2019, that bonus cost $5.5 million in cap dollars. Then, in 2020 and 2021, it would cost the Patriots $6.75 million each year unless he didnít extend his contract before the start of the 2020 league year. If he decided to sign elsewhere, re-sign after the league year began, or quit the sport altogether, the $6.75 million cap hit from 2021 would accelerate to 2020.

    Now, Brady is a Buccaneer. That 2021 cap hit has accelerated to 2020, meaning the Patriots have $13.5 million on the cap in dead money because of Bradyís contract. They canít spend any of that money on free agents or retaining their own players."

    Ridiculous a team can't use money on free agents or their own players they obtained from a former player.

    They didn't obtain money from a former player.

    There are certain bonuses that are pro-rated, meaning spread out over several cap years.

    If the contract is nullified for whatever reason, the remainder of these cap hits are instead accounted for under the current cap year.

    Brady already got that money in 2019. But it counts against the Patriots' salary caps in 2019 and 2020.
