Can someone explain how these voidable contracts work and why they do them? 

Its spreading his signing bonus from. 1 year to 5 years.

Holy crap!  They are actually going to play him at QB?!

Its a cap space saving exercise. It frees up 7m+ this season.

And to think there are people that believe that JAs market value can’t go up if we wait.  Utter nonsense.  His market value has already gone up since the debate 2 weeks again.  Whether or not he wants to capitalize on that is a different story....but his market value has already risen. 
 

35M for Taysom Hill.  I’m a fan of the guy, but 35M already?  Meh

But why the $140million part? Where does that number come from?

I feel like this is a joke.  Jokeman, Joker avatar, near-useless QB....outrageous post.

I've been posting since 1999, my nickname in honor of Jackie "The Jokeman" Martling. I chose the avatar after SJ13 Why So Serious? t-shirt game against the Bengals.

This is just an accounting move folks. Nothing to see here.

This sounds like one of those old poison pill contracts. Bills should do this with Josh Allen before the NFL bans them. 

 

Give Josh an 8 year deal that's really a 4 year deal just to spread the cap hits out. 

 

Why would the NFL ban them?

Voidable years in contracts are used to delay cap hits.  Let’s say you have a player on a 1 year, $12M deal. That’s a $12M cap hit that season.  But if your team wants to delay some of that cap hit, they can make it a 5 year deal with 4 years that automatically void.  One structure is 5 years with a $10M signing bonus and $2M salaries in every year.  Now it’s a 5 year, $20M contract that automatically voids to 1 year, $12M.  But the cap hits would be $4M in year one and $8M in year two.

It just seems like it should be illegal right? Why not just add voidable years to every contract? Maybe limit voidable years to 2 years or something.
