Playing football can be quite lucrative!! Lol
Can his agent work for me?
$20M signing bonus.
What a stupid contract. SEVEN YEARS?!?
This contract gives the Cowboys absolutely no flexibility with Martin in the future. It is horribly structured, so he’s here a full 7 years unless we want to eat a Romo-esque cap hit lol.
Jerry always overextending and getting bent over by his players.
Lol, I hope he can pass, catch, rush the passer and defend the run while he's at it.
Anywho, pretty sure it's structured as 3 guaranteed years here with the latter 4 being able to be restructured as needed to free up cap.
Yikes! Not quite Bezos territory, but yikes!
Nothing about this is correct. His contract absolutely has flexibility. It can be restructured in 2019 or 2020 to create cap space if needed. It also has no guaranteed salary after 2020 with only $8M in dead cap from bonus proration. It's a 3 year dead with 4 option years, not that anyone expects most of if not all those years to be picked up.
How does a signing bonus work? Is it 20 million on top of his guarantees?
The bonus is included in the guarantees. It is prorated over 5 years (or the length of the deal if shorter than 5). In Zack's case, he has $40M in guarantess, the $20M upfront bonus and then the first $20M in salary, so $2M this year, $10M next year, and $8M in 2020.
So he takes home $40M over next three years? I'm I reading this right?
Actually it is 43m over the first 3 years
That means there is only 4/50.3m left after 2020 and none of it is guaranteed
This is as team friendly as a huge contract gets(besides Tron)
I was reading his post and getting mad...... you showed him exactly how wrong he was on all counts
Love Zack, not only because he's the best guard in football but because he's one of the few strong leaders this team has.
It is a great deal
The last 4 years are Team Options with no guarantees or Roster Bonuses
They can cut him in 2021 and save 3m on the cap and be done with him.......hopefully that doesn't happen and he plays the whole 7 years
