Looking Ahead

As the Bears continue their search for upgraded talent, which players will they have to worry about signing in upcoming seasons, and what are their base salaries while they are signed? Find it here, from 2004-2011.

* Please note that these salaries are base compensation ONLY and are, in many cases, just a minor portion of what counts against the salary cap. Many contracts have incentives and signing bonuses that count more against the cap than the base salary. The salary cap for every NFL team in 2004 will be 64 percent of all shared gate revenues and all shared broadcast revenues (defined gross revenue). The maximum salary cap for 2004 is $80.6 million per club.
