Current Agreement Mike Evans agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a 5-year, $82,500,000 contract, with $55,008,000 guaranteed and an average yearly salary of $16,500,000. Evans' basic salary in 2021 will be $12,250,000, with a cap hit of $16,637,500 and a dead cap value of $13,162,500. The deal also includes $17,125,000 in nonguaranteed money and a $10,000,000 signing bonus.
He has a base salary of $11,944,416 in 2022, $12,250,000 in 2023, $12,450,000 in 2024, and $12,650,000 in 2025. His cap number for those seasons is $22,837,916, $24,000,000, $24,750,000, and $25,250,000 respectively. In addition, he will receive $27,625,000 in cash over the next two years.
Evans is slated to earn $15,000,000 total in guarantees in 2019. He'll also receive a $1,000,000 workout bonus and a $3,500,000 annual performance bonus based on how many yards Evans produces this season. If Evans reaches certain targets during the year, he could see another $1,000,000 added to his salary.
John Miller agreed to terms with the Carolina Panthers on a one-year, $1,127,500 contract that included a $137,500 signing bonus, a $137,500 guarantee, and an average yearly salary of $1,127,500.
He will be joining his third NFL team after spending the first two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos. In 2011, he started all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded 50 tackles and three sacks. Last year, Miller started 15 games for the Broncos and tallied 43 tackles and 3 sacks.
When John Miller was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft, they were looking for someone to fill the role of pass rusher opposite of Clinton Portis. Since then, he has grown into one of the best outside linebackers in the league. In 2009, he registered 59 tackles and six sacks. In 2010, he had 63 tackles and seven sacks. And in 2011, he finished with 74 tackles and four sacks.
What is so amazing about John Miller is that even though he has only been playing football for ten years, he already has over 100 career sacks. That's almost as many as DeMarcus Ware who is currently ranked number two behind only Jason Taylor among outside linebackers.
Even though he hasn't reached 100 career interceptions, they are getting closer.
Current Agreement Aaron Colvin agreed to terms with the Washington Football Team on a one-year, $204,000 deal, with an average yearly salary of $204,000. This makes him one of the highest paid center prospects in this year's NFL draft.
He made $480,000 last season at Stanford. His production was down somewhat (6.5 sacks), but his team still managed to win 11 games and reach the Pac-12 Championship game under David Shaw. The Redskins are expected to use that as motivation for signing Colvin; they lost to Stanford 19-14 in the title game.
Colvin's deal is worth up to $1.5 million if he makes the roster as a rookie. If he doesn't, he will return to Stanford next season.
In other words, he's making quite the investment - both financially and logistically - to try and make it in the NFL. It's not easy winning a starting job at any position in football, let alone one at center where there are several other players willing to take a pay cut to get on the field. But Colvin is putting himself out there by agreeing to such a large contract with a new team when he could easily have signed with another playoff contender who were willing to give him a chance at a role.
Chris Davis agreed to terms with the Baltimore Orioles on a seven-year, $161,000,000 contract, with $161,000,000 guaranteed and an annual average salary of $23,000,000. Davis will get a base pay of $17,000,000 in 2021, with a total income of $21,065,362. MLB contract information is often obtained from Baseball Prospectus and Rotoworld.
In 2018, Davis finished with 56 home runs and 131 RBI's over 162 games played. That averages out to one homer every 2.46 at bats and one RBI every 3.49 at bats. In 2019, his first full season with the Orioles, he hit 49 homers and drove in 105 runs. That averages out to one homer every 1.81 at bats and one run every 2.44 at bats.
Davis's career stats include 289 homers and 854 RBI's in 1602 games played. That averages out to one homer every 1.71 at bats and one RBI every 2.45 at bats.
He was selected to his first All-Star Game this year and has been named the MVP so far this season. In addition, he leads all of baseball with 13 homers and 37 RBI's.
Davis made his major league debut on April 5th, 2013 against the Texas Rangers. He had two hits in that game which included a double. His final at bat came in the ninth inning with the Orioles down by one run. He struck out looking.
Current Agreement Randy Bullock agreed to terms with the Detroit Lions on a one-year, $1,750,000 contract that included a $200,000 signing bonus, $750,000 guaranteed, and an average yearly salary of $1,750,000.
He was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the second round of the 2000 NFL Draft. He spent his first four seasons with the team, before being traded to the Washington Redskins in 2004. That same year, he started eight games for the Redskins at wide receiver before suffering a season-ending knee injury. After recovering from his injury, he played three more seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals, starting nine games in 2007. In 2010, he signed with the Lions as a free agent but was released during final cuts. Overall, he has played in 89 games over seven seasons in the NFL and caught 91 passes for 1,340 yards and six touchdowns.
His career high in catches is 14, which he set in 2006. His best season came in 2004 when he had 57 receptions for 805 yards and five touchdowns. Before joining the NFL, he played two seasons at Louisiana State University where he made 66 catches for 994 yards and eight scores.
After his NFL career ended, he returned to school to earn his degree in sports management. Now he works as a security guard to support his family.
Current Agreement Mike Davis agreed to terms with the Atlanta Falcons on a two-year, $5,500,000 contract that included a $1,500,000 signing bonus, $3,000,000 guaranteed, and an average yearly salary of $2,500,000.
He has a chance to cash in big time. If the Falcons make it to Super Bowl LI, then Davis will be on the sideline along with his fellow players on the winning team. He'll receive the same pay as them even though he didn't actually play in the game.
Davis is entitled to every penny of that guarantee because the Falcons have a perfect record (11-0). In addition, he's guaranteed $3,000,000 if the team makes it to the NFC Championship Game this season. Finally, if the Falcons win their first playoff game, then Davis would get another $1 million. So basically, he's getting paid like one of the starting linebackers but he can also pitch in at other positions if needed.
When the new league year begins, Davis will be able to negotiate with other teams. However, the Falcons are likely to keep him since they already have enough depth at linebacker. Besides, keeping your best player shows faith in him and that could help him get a bigger pay day next offseason.
As for Davis, this is surely a good deal for him.
