Thank you. I figured there had to some something up with the wording. That makes sense.

I know we've ragged on Carr a lot in here (mostly just F'ing around with Rstarter) but good for him. He's about to blow past big brother's $40 million in career earnings. At least this Carr is good.

Actually I'm kind of wrong too. That total guarantee probably has a chunk that is "guaranteed for injury only" which is why they worded it that way. Agents like to throw that fluff out to reporters to make the deal seem bigger than it really is. You would need a full breakdown to see whats really guaranteed and whats not, but his SB is $40M with the rest of the $30M being unknown at this point.

I'm sure all the details will come out over the next few days.

Im sure its part injury and part base/workout guarantees. Exactly how much is the unknown.

Hopefully they back up the Brinks truck for him and they get stuck with his contract.

I guess franchising him in hopes that he would fail so they could say, "I told you so" hasn't really worked out for them...

Hopefully he has the guaranteed portion payable when they move to Las Vegas.  He will save 13.5% in state taxes.

The reports said he some sort of deferred payment deal in place for that. Not sure the specifics or cap implications of it.
