Jaguars | Brackens' Savings No Longer a Savings

Fri, 04 Jun 2004 19:54:32 -0700

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the Jacksonville Jaguars release of DE Tony Brackens earlier this year gave them a $7.051 million hit of "dead money" on their salary cap this season and saved the team about $2.2 million. However, they lost virtually all of that by re-signing Brackens to a one-year deal, as his new cap charge is $2.029 million. So, even though he's still on roster at a much cheaper price than his original $9.261 million cap hit, he still counts $9.08 million against the cap, with the majority coming in the form of "dead money". He's also set to receive $398,438 in a roster bonus, a $5,600 workout bonus and there are $300,000 in likely earned incentives.

Tue, 27 Apr 2004 10:50:57 -0700

Bart Hubbuch, of the Florida Times-Union, reports the Jacksonville Jaguars' decision not to draft a defensive end in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft could speed the return of free agent DE Tony Brackens. The Jaguars cut Brackens in a salary-cap move last month but reiterated last weekend that they would gladly re-sign him at a reasonable salary. "All things being equal, he definitely wants to play for the Jaguars,'' Brackens' agent, Jim Steiner said. "He doesn't want to retire, and he likes Jacksonville. It's just a matter of working out a deal.'' The Jaguars are believed to have offered Brackens a one-year contract with incentives that is far less than the $3 to $5 million range he is thought to be seeking.
