The deal has a maximum value of $12.5 million but is basically $5.5 million ($4.5 million signing bonus + $1 million guaranteed base salary), up to $7 million worth in incentives and two voidable years for cap purposes. Pelissero adds, under the assumption his incentives — based on playing time, wins, playoff wins and a variety of stats — are all classified as “not likely to be earned”.

It’s close to Cam Newton’s new contract but Winston is 6 years younger than Cam.
