Only signing bonuses count against the cap. Performance bonuses don't get counted until they are earned. Jones has 925,000 salary plus the 92,500 signing bonus so the cap hit is only 1.17M. Doubtful he will get all his performance bonuses in his rookie year. If he does we've found ourselves another Shea Weber.
