Breaking down the contract of Bengals LB Vincent Rey

John Grieshop

The contract details are released and the breakdowns are finally known, including the cap hit for each season with Vincent Rey under contract.

As was pointed out on Monday, the two-year contract that Bengals linebacker Vincent Rey signed was worth $4.2 million with $1 million guaranteed.

Here's the breakdown.

Rey's contract included a $1 million roster bonus, which can be applied to the year in which the contract is triggered. Along with a $100,000 workout bonus in each of the two years of his deal, and the $1 million in base salary that's expected to earn in 2014, Rey's cap number this year is $2.1 million.

His base salary increases to $2 million in 2015 with a $100,000 workout bonus. His cap number next year is also $2.1 million.

[NOTE: Had Rey signed a signing bonus, the cap value would be distributed over the life of the contract]

2014 $1 million $0 $1 million $100,000 $2.1 million $1.1 million
2015 $2 million $0 $0 $100,000 $2.1 million $2.1 million
