if you're a good NFL player who have two offer for five-year & $30 million, what do you prefer to take?

1) $0 right now, $6 million per year with the first two-year guaranteed & the last three years non guaranteed.

2) $10 million signing bonus, $500K in 2014 , $1.5M in 2015 ( both guaranteed), $6M per year non guaranteed for the last three years.


unless you offer more guaranteed money i'll take the signing bonus!

I liked the front loading of contracts that MD and staff started doing as well. It was partially to ensure they met cap requirements, but it also prevent back end of deals from weighing down the cap. Keep them front loaded and close to the ceiling while making sure that every year you'll have plenty of cap to work with. Guys get paid more upfront and most players love that idea.

Surprised not a lot of teams don't take that approach.
