Who really got the best NFL free-agent deals?

Take Me To Post Comment Form

The first week of NFL free agency brings a flood of news and numbers. Gotta be careful with those numbers, though. NFL contract figures aren't always what they're initially cracked up to be.

A dive into some of the hard numbers of this year's deals shows a willingness by some teams (for some players) to shell out big cash in the first year.

But a lot of these deals are still structured in a way that allows teams relatively easy ways to escape after only a year or two. So when you hear the initial numbers, be careful not to get too excited. As always, the truth lies in the details.

Even accounting for the difference in value between tackles and centers, Solder's deal has several elements that make it a more desirable deal than Richburg's. Solder gets a $15.5 million signing bonus and fully guaranteed salaries of $5.9 million in 2018 and $12.9 million in 2019.

He's http://www.officialredsoxauthentic.com/Jimmie_Foxx_Jersey absolutely guaranteed to see every penny of the $34.8 million the Giants owe him over the next two years. And while nothing is guaranteed beyond 2019, the Giants have to decide on a $3 million roster bonus by the first day of the 2020 league year and a $4 million roster bonus by A.J. Green Jersey the first day of the 2021 league year.

So if they want to move on, Solder will know in time to hit free agency when it opens each of those two years.

By contrast, the 49ers are really not tied to Richburg beyond 2018. He gets a Joe Nieuwendyk Womens Jersey $9.3 million signing bonus, a $3 million fully guaranteed 2018 salary and a $4.2 million 2018 roster bonus that paid out http://www.officialastrosshop.com/authentic-43-lance-mccullers-jersey.html Sunday. That's $16.5 million Womens Stefan Charles Jersey just this year, which is excellent.

But while his $5.5 million 2019 salary and his $6.5 million 2020 salary are injury-guaranteed, the Niners can still cut Richburg healthy as late as March 31 each of those two seasons. Those salaries don't fully guarantee until April 1 of their respective years.

If the Niners want to find a better solution at center http://www.officialauthenticseahawksstores.com/nick+vannett+super+bowl+jersey.html -- as they apparently did this year, signing Richburg and trading http://www.officialwizardshop.com/authentic-1-chris-mccullough-jersey.html away recently signed Daniel Kilgore -- they can wait Clarence Weatherspoon Jersey two or three weeks into free agency before setting Richburg free, which could theoretically cost him dearly.

These are the kinds of details that really separate the good NFL deals from the not-so-good ones, and that's why we like to do this annual look at free agency to see whether we can figure out who really did well and what kinds of trends are emerging. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys china wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys
