Contract Notes

Donald Stephenson signed a three year, $14 million contract with the Denver Broncos on March 11, 2016. Stephenson received $10 million in guarantees, $6 million of which are fully guaranteed upon signing. The other $4 million becomes fully guaranteed on the 5th day of the 2017 league year. Stephenson received a $3 million signing bonus.

On March 12, 2017, Stephenson and the Broncos renegotiated his contract to reduce his scheduled $4 million 2017 base salary to $2 million, with the other $2 million now conditional on making the initial 53-player roster. On August 24, 2017 Stephenson and the Broncos again renegotiated his contract to finalize his reduced guaranteed base salary to $2.5 million, with the other $1.5 million converted to snap count incentives. This renegotiation also voids Stephenson's 2018 contract year, which will allow him to become a free agent for 2018.
