A breakdown of Lions' deal with Collins, based on reported numbers

Allen Park — Contract information for free-agent agreements made on Monday and Tuesday can't be filed with the league until after the paperwork is signed later this week, but sometimes basic parameters of a deal will leak, often via a player's agent.

New England Patriots linebacker Jamie Collins and the Detroit Lions have reportedly agreed to terms.

Given the deal is front-loaded, like the majority of multi-year NFL contracts, the Lions will be able to get out of it prior to the final season with minimal cap consequences.

If the Lions were to cut Collins from the roster before the 2022 campaign, they'd be on the hook for just the $2.33 million prorated portion of the signing bonus.

By that point, given the steadily rising salary cap — which is in line to get another boost from upcoming TV contract negotiations and the recently ratified update to the collective bargaining agreement — $2.33 million should represent approximately 1 percent of a team's total cap figure in 2022.
