Why would you take off their signing bonus?

Because they both were not signed the same year. Yes Garrard will be paid more this year, no his salary is not higher than Moore. Do you want to count it as their salry cap hit? If so, Moore costs Maimi more than Garrard this year. It is all symantics.

It's not in any way semantics. Garrard is going to make more. In the totality of his contract he is going to be paid more than Moore. Why is that a point of contention? Why is it difficult to get? You don't pay him more of you expect to it him. There's zero logic in that. You pay him league minimum like they did Larry Johnson last year and your done with it. They didn't do that for the reasons I've already mentioned. -EK

Just because you say it's irrelevant doesn't make it so.
Good point. I'm assuming then you realize that applies to your logic below as well.

The fact that Moore was the starter and he is paid more that Moore means he got starter money.
We agree to disagree.

EKnight, if I understand your logic correctly, you are saying that the player's value to the team/position on the depth chart is invariably determined by the total dollar value of his contract?

I want to make sure that that is your actual point.

No. I'm saying that in this case- this one particular case- the team is not going to pay Garrard more than they are paying Moore if the expectation is that he won't even make the roster, as others have stated. -EK

I think you need to reword that because as it stands, it isn't anywhere close to accurate. I assume you mean for one season.

Good grief you like to argue semantics. Yes I mean for one year. The fact that you derived as much from my statement means it was clear enough and doesn't need rewording. -EK

Absolutely, everyone knows Bledsoe was a better QB than Brady in 2001. 

Bledsoe - 10-year, $103 million contract. 2001 cap hit $8,236,390.

Brady - cap hit in 2001 -- $314,960, playing under his rookie contract which was a four year deal with salaries at league min plus $100,000 signing bonus.
