  Stai Signing bonus was listed as $2.75 mil (Freep) and $3.5mil (WP) in various sources.                                  
    According to USA Today, his total pay in 2001 was $3,782,400                                  
    His base pay from the Lions in 2001 was $480K, leaving a difference of $3,302,400.                                  
    I thus estimate his signing bonus to be approximately $3,300,000.                                  
                                       
  Backus Backus total deal was 5 years at $6.573 mil. His SB was reported as $3.2 mil                                  
    When his base pay is added to the SB, it comes up about $1.5 mil. Short                                  
    USA Today adds another $740K to his 2001 pay, so I added that to the SB                                  
    Thus, there must be a roster bonus somewhere in the deal, probably after 3 years                                  
                                       
  Claiborne His 2002 bonus includes a $50,000 offseason workout bonus                                  
    In 2001, he was paid approximately $700K over his base, which I assume is a RB                                  
                                       
  Ellis In early 2001, renegotiated contract to take $3.323 mil. from base pay into bonus                                  
    In early 2002, renegotiated contract to take $2.266666 mil. from base pay (into bonus?)                                  
                                       
  McDougle In 2001, he was paid approximately $850K over his base, which I assume is a RB                                  
    Not sure if the RB all hit in 2001, or if spread out over all of 2001-2004, which I guessed                                  
                                       
  Porcher In 2002, he renegotiated moving salary into a SB of 3250000, allocated over 3 yrs since he addded a year to his deal                                  
    In 2003, there is a $1.0 mil roster bonus, and in 2002/2003 there is a 25000 workout bonus                                  
                                       
  Harrington His SB was $6.0 mil, but there is a $7.0 mil 2nd SB in 2003, plus several workout bonuses                                  
    He also has about $18.0-27.0 mil in undisclosed performance bonuses                                  
                                       
  Stewart Renegotiated in 2002 and received a $2.0 mil SB, with a $250K roster bonus in 2003
