    It has a maximum value of $64 million, and it includes almost $27.2 million guaranteed and another $4.5 million in bonuses Johnson should earn by the middle of the season if he sees even a minimum amount of playing time, according to NFL.com.

    $27.2 guaranteed for this years #2. So what's the big LSU QB looking for,
    $30.0 ?

    Yup, it's part of the increase in guaranteed money or something like that the NFLPA negotiated when they renegotiated a couple of years ago...... or something to that effect.

    I forgot what Al Davis said was the main stumbling block in contract negotiations with Russell, but i don't think it was the 30 million guaranteed.
