someone summarized it on hpf.com.
Here it is.
This seems like a big step in the direction of guaranteed contracts. I wonder how the other owners like that? A $12M roster bonus the 2nd year sounds pretty unusual to me too, but I'm no contract expert.
Guaranteed base salary has been creeping into the NFL for a while now - it just hasn't been publicized much since it's reserved for the higher paid players. and isn't the norm. Here's an article that's a few years old that shows trends back in '03 and I'm sure the amount of guaranteed base has continued upward. Owners just can't afford the massive outlay for a one time signing bonus any more and they have to find alternative ways to deliver it.
I don't think he needs a signing bonus in my opinion.
