oh and repped btw.
Yeah, his contract is the outlier. The first year's salary is guaranteed (18 million), then the next 40 million is guaranteed if he passes a physical next offseason. So really, it's up to 58 guaranteed, but it's all salary. The design was to protect the team from injury, but to reward Peyton if he can stay healthy. Considering how rich he already is, I don't think he cared about getting a signing bonus.
