The breakdown for receiver Adam Humphries' contract: It's a one-year deal with a $1.19 million cap hit with only $150,000 guaranteed. He has a $990,000 base salary with a $50,000 roster bonus. It's a low-cost signing for a player coming off a concussion while playing for Tennessee last season that landed him on injured reserve. He missed nine games last season.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

The William Jackson III contract was initially filed as having a fourth year that voids; it actually has a fifth year that also voids and therefore lowers his cap number each year. So his cap hits are: $4.656 million in 2021; $14 million in 2022 and $15.75 million in 2023. If he's cut after the 2022 season he would count $9 million in dead money, but there would be a $6.75 million cap savings.
