One of the great mysteries down in Davie this offseason - at least according to Dolphin fans - has been the contract of Channing Crowder. What we know is that the Dolphins re-signed Crowder to a 3 year contract last Wednesday. But for some reason, nobody can figure out how much the deal is worth. Rotoworld speculated that the deal might be worth around $20 million. But that number is nothing more than a guess.
So I did some digging - and didn't find much. But I have learned what Crowder's salary is in each of those 3 seasons. The problem is - this figure along is not enough to figure out either the total value of the contract nor the cap number for each season. But nonetheless, it's still something, I suppose.
His 2009 salary is $1.5 million. In 2010, his salary goes up to $2.1 million. And in 2011, the final year of Crowder's deal, he'll have a $2.5 million salary.
What does this mean in terms of Crowder's cap number? Not much - mainly because we have no information on Channing's various bonuses.
