Patriots extend Rob Ninkovich, help him avoid financial hit of suspension

Rob Ninkovich AP

New England defensive end Rob Ninkovich is suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy, but the Patriots are helping him avoid the full financial hit from that suspension.

Ninkovich has agreed to a one-year contract extension through 2017, and according to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, part of that extension involves changing his 2016 pay so that he receives a $33,333 bonus for each game he plays. His old contract called for him to receive a $25,000 bonus for each game he plays.

In other words, under his old contract he had to play in all 16 games to earn the maximum roster bonus of $400,000. His suspension meant that he would make, at most, a roster bonus of $300,000. Now Ninkovich needs to play just 12 games to make the $400,000 bonus, so if he plays every game after serving his suspension, he’ll still get that $400,000 roster bonus he would have received if he hadn’t been suspended and had played 16 games.

The Patriots also lowered the portion of Ninkovich’s total pay this year that comes in the form of base salary, which will save him another $118,000 on his suspension.

The Patriots did something similar for Tom Brady when they re-did his contract this year: New England converted a $9 million base salary for 2016 into an $8 million signing bonus and a $1 million base salary. That allowed Brady to lose just $235,941.17 in base pay for his four-game Deflategate suspension, rather than the $2.11 million he would have lost if his contract hadn’t been changed.

There’s nothing against the rules about teams helping players lose as little money as possible while suspended, although it does point to an odd aspect of the NFL’s suspension policies, which dock players only their weekly pay and not a portion of all their pay, including signing bonuses, workout bonuses and other forms of compensation. Ninkovich and Brady are two longtime veterans and favorites of the Patriots’ decision-makers, and so the team is happy to help them avoid having to lose as much money as they could.

    Cheaters still cheating.

    Goodell should fine the team a 1st round pick, and 1 million

    No extensions should be allowed for any player facing a possible suspension

    Just shows cheating is supported on an institutional level.

    One team only…

    Multiple $m+ fines for institutionalized, serial cheating…

    Multiple $m+ fines for institutionalized, serial cheating…

    Multiple draft picks forfeited for institutionalized, serial cheating…

    Coach and owner compelled to apologize to owners for serial, institutionalized cheating…

    QB suspended for serial, institutionalized cheating.

  20. willycents says: Sep 11, 2016 12:27 PM

    Typical of the Pats organization: find a way to circumvent the actual meaning of the rules. The Patriot fans have no understanding of the meaning of “fair Play” under the implied meaning of rules. Sadly, they would be the first to scream if another team had done this,
    I am surprised the team did not find a way to pay Hernandez while he sits in prison; or, did they and are simply hiding the fact? I say they probably are since he matches their attitude that rules do not apply to them.

    I love these sneaky original kinds of moves, it’s like the Pats are hocking a fat one right on Goodell while still using salary cap rules, albeit stretching them. Some teams are better at manipulating the cap than others, those teams are usually the better ones.

    The Steelers’ contracts for example seem to be designed for restructuring, especially the bigger ones. The players love it when a restructure gets them a cash bonus now rather than in salary down the line and they see that the team is willing to pay them that way.

    Teams sever contracts and cut guys all the time, there’s usually no guarantee they ever see any future salary money at all. Omar Khan the Steelers cap guru is really good at what he does, cap manipulation is a very important aspect of team management.

    Looks like the Patriots guy is good too. The players see the Patriots are supporting their guy in ways they really don’t have to. Players remember this kind of thing and they pay it back in effort and loyalty. That’s one factor in how good teams become good teams.

    Go Steelers!

    Why all the hate towards Goodall? He is an employee of the owners and is told what to do. Pats anger should be at the other owners that pressured Goodall to come after them for years of Shady business on and off the field. He is just a puppet of 32 owners. People always blaming Goodell for this and that, he has no power, he is a frontman for 32 rich cowards.

    Pats have been caught cheating multiple times.

    Proven.

    Owner doesn’t pay $m in fines multiple times, give up picks multiple times and humiliate himself by apologizing to the other owners and forcing his coach to do the same – for cheating.

    Nor does a QB get suspended for ‘suspected’ or ‘accused’ cheating, as proven n court.

    You’re what’s known as ‘habitual offenders’ with a high rate of recidivism.

    Only question among reasonable fans is what other cheating schemes will be discovered in the future.

    Believe hes a Donks fan actually. And he cries like a five year old girl when you bring up Elway’s salary cap cheating that “deferred payments are legal”

    He carefully ignores the point that when those deferred payments plus the “interest” the Donks paid him are not declared in the contract delivered to the league that they were in fact illegal, under the table payments that were salary cap cheating.

    The Broncos and Elway, cheating the cap for 20 years. nI suspect if the league dug into their finances under Elway the gm they’d find the same thing going on now with crucial players

  65. FinFan68 says: Sep 11, 2016 2:30 PM

    Some applaud this but I find it reprehensible. The team just rewarded a player for cheating (again) while undermining the league’s authority to instill discipline. I don’t care about the debate over a history of cheating or the deflategate fiasco. This sends the wrong message to players and to fans and in a way promotes cheating. How is this different than giving a player a fake position and paying them the amount of the fine/suspension?

    This has nothing to do with trying to win as the player is out no matter what. They are diminishing the earned punishment and undermining the league in the process. A simple analogy would be: A child does something wrong so the parent takes away the phone for a month. Then the other parent buys a prepaid phone for that child to use until the regular phone is returned. I’m sure you would be totally OK with that if you were the one that took the phone away, right?

    He’s been a very solid and dependable player for them. Clearly they believe him when he said that the banned substance was not listed as an ingredient in whatever nutritional supplement he was taking. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did their own analysis of the supplement before making this decision. They don’t like to be wrong on things and have it blow up on them. My son took a protein powder from GNC when trying to bulk up for college ball and he started developing gynocomastia quickly. He was off that stuff immediately. The supplement business is highly unregulated and I firmly believe some companies put stuff in their supplements to get better results, without disclosing the ingredients.

    I always remember the games that are won by 2 points and come down to the final play.

    I don’t know about you but when I think of an “epic beating”
    I always remember the games that are won by 2 points and come down to the final play.

    I don’t know about you but when somebody asks who won the game to determine who went to the super bowl I know it was the Broncos epic beat down of the arrogant and over confident Cheaties. I always will remember the Patsies were innocent and lost two draft picks and four games from the best QB of our times ……and I smile AJ
    No giggle knowing morons like you are crapping your knickers in rage. A have a great day,but it was a great beating that Tammy took.👅👅👅

    By that measure the 7 point victory the Broncos put up against Pittsburgh must qualify as an embarassing and legendary thrashing. This is what happens to the infantile mind afflicted with patsanoia. It revels in another team beating NE by 2 and calls it an ‘epic’ beat down when Denver beat the team they root for by 3.5 times as many points the week before.

    Since it’s been proven that the Pats cheated the entire NFL and none of their wins during spygate are legitimate nobody cares.

    Facts never seem to matter to Patriots haters.
    You had almost 10 years to get your facts right and you failed!

    How can anyone reconcile in their mind that a film that was never watched allowed a team win 4 Superbowls?

    You may also want to consider a few facts which are often overlooked. Tom Brady and The Patriots won the Superbowls in 2001, 2003 and 2004. That means that 3 of the 4 Patriot Superbowl wins were prior to the 2007 Camera in the Wrong Location incident.

    A single incident from a portion of a single game played almost 10 years ago, where a memo from the same year indicated that a camera needed to be moved to a different location within the stadium is old news.

    Maybe someone should do like the other haters and stick to ignoring science while blaming Tom Brady for the cold weather lowering the PSI in footballs. All while the NFL keeps the PSI information collected during the 2015 season secret.
