Contract Notes

Desmond Trufant signed a five year, $68.75 million contract extension with the Falcons on April 8, 2017. The details of the contract come via a report by Mike Florio of PFT who was the first with the contract breakdown.  The only difference here is that I am estimating that Trufant received a $7 million rather than $7.5 million option based on the running totals reported. I will update further if I confirm otherwise.

Per PFT, Trufant will receive a $15 million signing bonus and $20.776 million is guaranteed at signing. Another $15 million is guaranteed for injury and will vest to become fully guaranteed on the 3rd day of that league year. The vesting guarantees include a $4.25 million salary and $7 million option in 2018 and a $9.5 million base guarantee in 2019. The contract reduces Trufant’s salary cap charge in 2017 by $3.5 million.
