    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.

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

    NOT the bonus, just the garanteed money.

    The Bonus is the garanteed money
    The salary is not.

    but I doubt that he got a 24 million dollar bonus, that is manning and vick sized payment.

    i think the signing bounus was in the 19 million range, a little lower than manning's last year. total contract was vauled at 49.5 mil.

    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.
