Notes: (a) On injured reserve; (b) physically unable to perform; (c) practice squad; (d) cap number is so high because Patriots used bookkeeping maneuver involving "likely to be earned incentives" to use up remaining cap room for 2003 and be able to carry over about $3 million into the 2004 cap; (e) because Stokes was signed during the playoffs, he does not earn a base salary and has no cap charge.
