They just added 5 year 22.5 to the 2011 contract, which makes it called an extension so you count 2011.
I have no idea what you're talking about. Why are we "counting" years?
It was a 5 year extension to an existing 1 year contract.
The extension was 5 years, 8M guaranteed with 4M as a signing bonus.
The original contract was 1 year, 2.5M. The 2.5M was guaranteed when the 2011 season started.
The total is a 6 year contract with 2.5M in year one and 22.5M in the 5 year extension.
The numbers on spotrac are wrong. They don't even add up. They lost $750,000 somewhere.
