Contract Notes

Demario Davis signed a three year contract extension with the New Orleans Saints on September 12, 2020.  The extension is worth $27 million in new money with $14.75 million guaranteed at signing including a $11 million signing bonus.  Total guarantee value is $18.35 million.  Davis has full guaranteed salaries in 2020 and 2021, and is due a $3.6 million roster bonus on the 5th day of the 2021 league year.  The final year of the contract is voidable.  New Orleans gained $1.8 million in cap room for 2020 with the extension.

Davis signed a one year extension worth $12 million with the Saints in 2022. We are valuing this as a new three year contract. The contract carries a max value of $34 million over three years. Davis' 2022 and 2023 salary cap charges remain unchanged.

Davis restructured his contract with the Saints on March 6, 2021. We are estimating that Davis dropped his salary to the minimum and converted $5.225 million to a signing bonus. The move created $3,918,750 in cap space for the Saints. Davis' cap number will increase by $1.3 million in each of the next three years.
