the wouldn't need it. Like was said earlier, in the NFL bonuses get prorated over the length of the contract, but are paid up front in full.

So over a 5 year deal, the $9 million bonus only counts as $1.8 million against the cap each year.

My point is not so much the cap space issue on this, its that large revenue teams wil be able to offer much larger bonues than small revenue teams.

Cap space is a problem because if you draft a good team, you will invariably lose some of those good players you drafted because you won't be able to fit them all under the cap.
