Contract Details: Fitzgerald, Cardinals, Jags

Here are the contract details on some of the NFL’s latest deals:

  • Larry Fitzgerald‘s new deal with the Cardinals includes a base salary of $11M plus incentives, a source tells Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The pact does not include a signing bonus, but he did manage to match his $11MM salary from 2018. That’s not a bad deal for the veteran wide receiver given his drop in production last season.
  • The Jaguars‘ three-year deal with safety Jarrod Wilson is worth $9MM, a source tells NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (Twitter link). The contract calls for a $1MM signing bonus, $1.5MM guaranteed, and up to $1.75MM in playtime incentives over the last two years of the deal. Prior to the new deal, he was slated to be a restricted free agent this offseason.
  • Seantrel Henderson‘s new one-year deal with the Texans can be worth up to $4.5MM, but much of that sum is tied to performance incentives, as Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle tweets. He’s set to earn a base salary of $1.5MM with $1MM guaranteed, plus a $500K roster bonus in April and a $500K bonus if he’s on the 46-man roster for at least 12 games. He’ll also see a $2MM roster bonus paid out at a rate of $125K for every game he’s on the 46-man roster.

      And yet he made the choice to play there. Dang athletes, actually wanting to stay loyal to their team.

        If he was severely hurt, they wouldn’t have resigned him. Loyalty is based purely on ability to the eyes of the owners; just ask P Manning. One missed season & fired.

          JKB0811 – you’re a moron, Peyton was in April, still totally unsure if he could ever play again; plus the Colts had the #1 pick & Andrew Luck sitting there. The 2011 season with backup Curtis Painter was a total bust, in fact, they had to start a journeyman back-up the last 3 games just to get a win. So..if in fact Peyton couldn’t play, & they counted on it & didn’t draft a QB, then what? And, Peyton was given the chance to stay & Luck would be back-up & Peyton said he couldn’t share reps with a developing QB because he needed all of them to come back. A little selfish maybe even!

      Dick Butkus was the most dominating defensive player ever to play in the NFL. He never played in a single playoff game. Are you going to tell us his talent was wasted too? LOL.
