Contract Notes

Contract Notes

Geno Smith signed a three year, $75 million contract with the Seahawks. Smith received $40 million in guarantees of which $27.3 million is guaranteed at signing. If on the roster on the 5th day of the waiver period in 2024, Smith's 2024 salary will be guaranteed. If on the roster on the 5th day of the 2024 league year Smith will earn a $9.6 million roster bonus. On the 5th day of the 2025 league year a $10 million roster bonus is available. The contract contains $30 million in roster bonus escalators that can increase the value of the contract to $105 million. To earn the escalators Smith must achieve the same stats and team performance as 2022 per PFF's Brad Spielberger.

The Seahawks converted Smith's $9.6 million roster bonus due in 2024 to a signing bonus. The move creates $4.8 million in cap room for 2024 and adds $4.8 million to Smith's 2025 salary cap number. Field Yates of ESPN had the report on the conversion.
