Taylor Heinicke Accepts Pay Cut

Tuesday, April 2, 2:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Taylor Heinicke took a pay cut recently from an expected $5 million base salary in 2024 to $1.21 million, according to Roster Management System. His $1.32 million roster bonus, which was due just after the league year began last month, was instead classified as a signing bonus. His $40,000 per game active roster bonus was also removed from his contract. The reduction in his deal lowers Heinicke's salary cap number from $8.96 million to $4.53 million, including a cash value of $2.53 million. If Atlanta were to release him, he would cost $3.32 million in dead money with only a cap savings of $1.21 million. The 31-year-old got a chance to start in 2023 when Desmond Ridder was benched, but Heinicke did nothing to separate himself and also got hurt. He'll enter 2024 as the backup to starter Kirk Cousins.

Tyler Huntley Signs With Browns

Sunday, March 17, 9:08 PM

The Cleveland Browns have signed quarterback Tyler Huntley to a one-year deal on Sunday. It's a bit surprising to see the Baltimore Ravens let Huntley walk away considering he has been a viable option for them over the last few seasons. During his career, Huntley has thrown for 1,957 passing yards, eight touchdowns, and seven interceptions, adding 509 rushing yards to his total as well. Huntley also started a playoff game for the Ravens during the 2022 season against the Cincinnati Bengals. Now, the 26-year-old will get a chance to compete for the backup job in Cleveland. He'll have plenty of competition with Jameis Winston and Dorian Thompson-Robinson also trying to secure a backup quarterback spot on the Browns.
