CONTRACTS SIGNINGS, EXTENSIONS, AND RESTRUCTURINGS
Here where we will list all restructuring of deals that will happen in the 2005 off season. Some players may be asked to restructure their contracts which would convert base salaries into signing bonuses to save cap money. This practice usually puts teams in a bad cap situation in future years so it isn't likely this off season since the team is in good cap shape. We will list all contract signings and extensions when they are completed throughout the off season.

FB Daimon Shelton - 2 yrs.. Base $700,000 (2005); $950,000 (2006).
WR Roscoe Parrish - 4 yrs. $2.7 M.. SB $1.32M.
RB Lionel Gates - 3 yrs. $959,000.. SB $34,000.
OL Bennie Anderson - 3 yrs. $5.1 M. SB $1.5 M. Incentives $400,000.
OL Mike Gandy - 2 yrs. $2.59 M. SB $800,000.
RB Joe Burns- 1 yr. $455,000.
QB Kelly Holcomb - 4 yrs. $6.6 M. SB $2 M. Base $665,000 (2005); $875,000 (2006); $1.235 M (2007); $1.535 M (2008).
