Kygz: So, since he was waived does he lose his contract money?
Since he's been in the league more than three years is this season's salary guaranteed?
How much has this guy been paid in his career for what amounts to one awesome game?

NFL contracts work in the following manner:

Signing bonus is guaranteed, and paid to the player up front. It is detailed out over the contract length for salary cap purposes, but he already has that money in hand.

Yearly salary is more complex. If you have a contract prior to the start of the season, once the season begins, you are guaranteed that money for that season. If you are not on a roster, and sign during the season, it is not guaranteed, and you get just your weekly game check.

If you are cut, but get claimed on waivers, the new team picks up your contract. If you clear waivers, and get signed by a new team, you are making money on your new deal, as well as being paid by the old team.
