According to a source with knowledge of the contract, Demps received a signing bonus of $11,000. Demps' signing bonus brings New England closer to the $76,585 maximum that teams could spend on signing bonuses for undrafted free agents in 2012. (New England is currently at $76,500)

In addition to the signing bonus, the Patriots have fully guaranteed $200,000 of the $390,000 base salary Demps would earn if he makes the 53-man roster. If Demps does not make the team, he'd still get that money. The total of $211,000 in guaranteed money is the second-largest sum made to a 2012 undrafted free agent, exceeded only by the $214,000 that the Dallas Cowboys guaranteed offensive lineman Ronald Leary.

I wonder who gets the $85 signing bonus.
I'd pay Mike Rivera $85 to leave town and never come back.

More fool you for over-paying, considering his chances of making the roster he'd probably do it for a bus ticket and a packet of gum.
