Mike White can potentially double his money in Miami

Given Tua Tagovailoa's injury history, Ahmed Fareed and Chris Simms love the Dolphins prioritizing backup QB and landing former Jets passer Mike White at the start of NFL free agency.

Mike Effin’ White will be moving to F-L-A under his new deal with the Dolphins. And he can double his money with an incentive package covering both seasons of his two-year deal.

Per a source with knowledge of the contract, White get a signing bonus of $3.42 million in 2023 and a fully-guaranteed base salary of $1.08 million. Next year, the non-guaranteed base salary is $3.5 million, for a two-year package of $8 million.

The contract also includes up to $4 million per year in incentives, based on factors such as playing time and team achievements, and playing time and playoff incentives. The specifics haven’t been disclosed, yet.

So if the Dolphins need White to play over the next two years, White could boost his compensation, perhaps significantly.
