Top Ten Cincinnati Bengals Salaries Entering 2013

New, comments

The Cincinnati Bengals have some contracts, but many of the richer deals previous signed are expiring in a couple of months. Here's the top ten salaries for 2013.

Contracts. Contracts. Sadly with the Cincinnati Bengals concluding an exciting ten-win season with a depressing effort on Saturday during Houston's 19-13 win, things shift from grandiose premonitions of success into free agency and the NFL draft. We've been scratching the surface lately and we'll continue to offer perspectives and raw numbers to really gauge this team's financial situation.

As was reported earlier this week the Bengals will enter 2013 with at least $55.1 million under the cap. Some didn't like that. It would probably be the same people complaining about the Bengals not having money to re-sign their top talent. Here's Cincinnati's top ten players, ranked by base salary with a projected cap hit based on known information (bonuses, etc).

PLAYER 2013 Salary Cap Hit*
Leon Hall $6.5 Million $8.4 Million
Andrew Whitworth $4.5 Million $6.75 Million
Domata Peko $3.7 Million $4.7 Million
Jason Allen $3.0 Million $4.1 Million
Travelle Wharton $2.675 Million $3.375 Million **
Kyle Cook $2.5 Million $3.34 Million
Jamaal Anderson $2.5 Million $3.575 Million
Reggie Nelson $2.45 Million $4.075 Million
BenJarvus Green-Ellis $2.3 Million $3 Million
A.J. Green $2.165 Million $5.369 Million
