    Amortization is how the signing bonus is applied to the salary cap. Another word for it would be proration. $6 million signing bonus is "spread out", "amortized", or "prorated" for X number of yrs. For contracts signed in 2007, signing bonuses can be "amortized" for 6 yrs. So, say Miami signs a FA and gives him a $6 million signing bonus. The player most likely gets all $6 million in his pocket this season, but for cap purposes, the $6 million is "amortized" over 6 yrs at $1 million/season ($6 million / 6 yrs).
