Contract Notes

Jerick McKinnon signed a four year, $30 million contract with the 49ers on March 14, 2018. McKinnon received $18 million in guarantees, $11.7 million of which is guaranteed at signing. Mckinnon received a $2 million signing bonus and $5.5 million roster bonus. His 2019 salary will become fully guaranteed on April 1, 2019. $2.6 million of his 2020 salary will become fully guaranteed on April 1, 2020. There are annual $250,000 per game roster bonuses and $50,000 workout bonuses. 2021 is an option year.

I am treating McKinnon's contract as if he received an additional $6 million signing bonus on top of his  $2 million signing bonus. This is because the contract, in my opinion, violates the 50% rule in the NFL CBA. The 50% rule states that the charge in year 2 must be at least half of that in the first year of the contract. If it is not the difference will be treated as a signing bonus.
