One of the Arizona Cardinals’ key free agent acquisitions this offseason has been receiver A.J. Green, who spent the last decade with the Cincinnati Bengals.
They agreed to a one-year, $6 million contract. However, with new details about his contract, we know the cap hit in 2021 will be much less than that.
Green’s contract has a pair of voided years for 2022 and 2023 to spread out the signing bonus cap hit.
According to Over the Cap, Green gets a $3.75 million signing bonus. His 2021 salary is $2.25 million and is fully guaranteed.
He also has $2.5 million in available incentives.
His cap hit in 2021 will be only $3.5 million. The 2022 and 2023 years on the deal void five days before the start of the 2022 league year, which will give the Cardinals $2.5 million in dead money towards next year’s cap, unless the voided years are made live and he is extended.
