$22.5 million fully guaranteed for Maclin at signing
In most cases the “guaranteed” money a player reportedly will receive is more (often much more) than the fully guaranteed money he’ll get. For Chiefs receiver Jeremy Maclin, those numbers are the name.
Per a source with knowledge of the contract, Maclin’s $22.5 million guaranteed is fully guaranteed, via a $12 million signing bonus and fully guaranteed base salaries of $750,000 in 2015 and $9.75 million in 2016.
The rest of the contract consists of base salaries of $9.75 million in 2017, $10.75 million in 2018, and $10.75 million in 2019, and annual workout bonuses of $250,000.
The cap numbers are $3.4 million in 2015, $12.4 million in 2016, and $12.4 million in 2017, $13.4 million in 2018, and $13.4 million in 2019.
It’s a two-year, $22.5 million deal with an annual team option on the remaining $32.5 million over three.
