Contract Notes

Johnny Hekker signed a six year, $20.8 million contract with the Rams on September 9, 2017. Hekker had four years remaining on his prior contract but we are valuing this as a six year contract because the guarantee would be bigger than the extension value. Hekker received $10 million in guarantees of which $4.25 million is guaranteed at signing. Hekker's signing bonus is worth $2.75 million. Hekker's 2018 and 2019 salaries are guaranteed for injury and will become fully guaranteed on the 5th day of the respective league year. Please credit OTC if using this information rather than calling a source a "verified report".

On April 9, 2018 Hekker converted $1.21 million of his salary to a signing bonus. The move created $968,000 in cap room for the Rams. His cap charge from 2019-2022 will increase by $242,000 in each season.
