Breaking down the contract of Marshall Newhouse

New, comments

Ten days into free agency, Newhouse signed a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals worth $805,000 - which also counts as his 2014 cap hit.

When the Cincinnati Bengals signed offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse, they acquired a versatile depth guy that offensive line coach Paul Alexander tends to covet. He's not great solution to an indeterminate problem. Newhouse allowed three sacks and 21 pressures on 162 passing snaps last season, mostly as a reserve with two starts in Green Bay. During 2012, when he started the full 16-game season, Newhouse allowed nine sacks and 54 pressures. And the year before that, Newhouse started 13 games and allowed 58 pressures.

Ten days into free agency, Newhouse signed a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals worth $805,000 - which also counts as his 2014 cap hit. The breakdown goes:

Base Salary: $730,000
Signing Bonus: $50,000
Workout Bonus: $25,000

Quite the change for someone who earned $1,323 million in 2013 -- the original rookie contract as a former fifth-rounder in Green Bay.
