    Erasmus contract details

    Vikings | Contract Update: James
    Tue, 9 Aug 2005 21:30:43 -0700

    According to the Associated Press, Minnesota Vikings rookie DE Erasmus James' contract is essentially a five-year deal worth $9.8 million including about $7.5 million in guaranteed money plus some back-loaded incentives that could raise the total value to $12.3 million.



    Sorry if it has been posted already. I've seen plenty of "Erasmus signs!" threads, but none with specs. All around a pretty good deal for him I think. Wish it would have got done quicker though...

    Re: Erasmus contract details

    Yea, that's a pretty nice contract. It's a shame his season got delayed like it did for those numbers...
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    NFL contracts aren't guaranteed. If you sign a 2 year 2 million dollar deal with no bonus, and the team cuts you before you play, you get $0.

    Alot of money in contrcts hinges on whether you get injured or not, whether you get cut or not, etc.

    Gaurenteed money is cash they hand you over the counter that's yours no matter what.

    guranteed as oppose to non guranteed. NFL contracts are non guranteed thats why they can cut you or restructer your deal if they feel like it. Thats the only **** up thing about the league....

    Re: Erasmus contract details

    Thanks a lot for your answers; makes sense now. Do other sports have guaranteed money, like baseball, basketball, and hockey?
