After being released by Denver, thug and alleged roid rage poster boy Bill Romanowski signed with Da Raidahs.

Maybe he can coach the team too.

NFL teams make the lengths of contracts over-long because they prorate the signing bonus toward the salary cap over the length of the contract.

Example: A team gives a 5-year contract with a $5 million dollar bonus. Only $1 million counts on this year's cap, giving the team more room to sign other players for this year.

Of course, if the player gets released the entire remainder of the signing bonus get put toward the cap right away. That's part of the reason you're seeing so many guys get released now instead of after June 1, because the cap value would roll over. It's also part of the reason teams like the Cowboys get so bad. I think they had like $25 million toward last year's cap committed to players not on the team anymore.

i personally like roman. i thought the texans should have picked him up to bring fire to their new and young defense... but that was my own personal opinion.

You have to read the details... he only plays for 1-2 years, then he becomes the team's pharmacutical supplier!
