Default Alex Smith FINALLY Signs...per 610

I glanced around for a link but didn't find anything...they just mentioned that he finally signed to an undisclosed amount...I hope it is true because he has single handedly caused a logjam of contract negotiations.

Here's your link - now the other picks will probably start signing like dominoes,
but don't have an idea how long it will take to get to the 16th.

if you think about it, that makes the most sense.
Sets the pay scale for everyone in between.

The salary is not.

Of course your correct. I guess I just didn't make myself clear. I meant it is not what he gets the moment he signed ie. signing bonus, but rather that they are payed out at different intervals, most likely over a couple of years, but they are garanteed. Either way, it's a boatload of dough.
