    I believe that each team is allocated a certain amount of money based on the CBA and final regular season standings to help sign the rookies and to help with the salary cap. Don't quote me on that

    I was wondering what it was because I seen that every team got something.
    Depending where you were on the draft board determined how much you got....

    yeah that's what you get to help you sign your draft picks. Obviously you don't just only that amount but it's an incentive to help sign as many players as you can with it.

    Mendenhall's signing bonus alone will be more than that
