Contract Notes

DeAndre Hopkins signed a five year, $81 million contract extension with the Houston Texans on August 31, 2017 that includes $49 million in guarantees. The full details of this contract come from a report by Mike Florio of PFT. At this time I am valuing this contract with a roster bonus counting in full in 2017, however if the contract was not officially signed today it will prorate on the cap. We will update accordingly if that is the case. Per Florio, $36.5 million of the contract is fully guaranteed. The guarantee consists of a $7.5 million signing bonus and his 2017 and 2018 salaries. In addition a $12.5 million injury guarantee on his 2019 salary will become fully guaranteed if Hopkins is on the roster on the 5th day of the 2018 league year. Provided the bonus counts in full Hopkins cap number will increase in 2017 by $10,085,000.
