$12 million signing bonus/5 yrs = $2.4 million proration per year
If he did have an $8 million roster bonus, his 2008 cap number would be $15.2 million
I have been trying to find out the breakdown for months but my "insider" who helps me with numbers hasn't replied to this request

Also, if he really did have an $8 million roster bonus, I would suspect he would be part of the rebuilding process and cut or traded
However, another possibility is that the $8 million is an option payment and is amortized at $2 million/year......if this were the case: 4.8 + 2 + 2.4 = $9.2 million cap hit
