NFL | Boselli To Canton?

Fri, 18 Jul 2003 12:04:25 -0700

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports there will be a big controversy over whether former Houston Texans OT Tony Boselli (shoulder) should be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame after he becomes eligible in five years.

Boselli has only played in 91 regular season games and has not played in a game since September 2001.

Texans | Not as Much Cap Space as Appears

Tue, 25 Mar 2003 13:06:17 -0800

Carter Toole for HoustonTexans.com reports Houston Texans GM Charlie Casserly notes that reports the club is $15 million under the cap are somewhat misleading, as the club doesn't really have that much money at its disposal. Houston has to pay QB David Carr a $5 million acceleration of his signing bonus and has to pay OT Tony Boselli $4 million if he plays this season, something the club is "optimistic" will happen, Casserly said. The team's first-round and second-round picks are expected to count $3 million against the cap. None of these items appear in current cap calculations, he said.

Texans | Boselli's Restructure Saves Team $3.85 Million

Tue, 11 Feb 2003 16:33:05 -0800

Updating previous reports, ESPN.com’s Len Pasquarelli reports Houston Texans OT Tony Boselli’s (shoulder) restructured contract with the team will buy him more time in his recovery from continued shoulder problems. By restructuring, Boselli has cut his salary cap hit by $3.85 million this year. He was scheduled to earn $4.5 million in base salary, which has been reduced to $650,000. If he’s healthy and able to play, he could earn it back through incentives. If he plays 20 percent of the snaps, he’ll collect a bonus of $500,000. The structure is set up to pay him an additional $500,000 for every 10 percent more that he plays. Thus, playing about 80 percent of the snaps will earn him back the pay cut he took. He’s due a $2 million roster bonus March 1, which his agent, Jack Mills, has reiterated he’ll receive.

Texans | Boselli Willing To Help Out

Wed, 29 Jan 2003 05:43:03 -0800

The Houston Chronicle reports Houston Texans OT Tony Boselli is willing to do whatever it takes to remain with the Texans. He said Tuesday he would restructure his contract to help lessen the burden of his $7.55 million salary cap figure for 2003. His cap figure includes a $3.05 million prorated signing bonus and a guaranteed $2 million roster bonus the team must pay this year. The Texans are believed to be asking Boselli to take a cut in his $4.5 million base salary, which he could earn back with incentive clauses. By doing so, the team could protect themselves from the potentially disastrous salary cap ramifications should Boselli not be able to play this season.
