Contract Notes

Johnny Hekker signed a five year contract with the Rams on September 6, 2019. Hekker, who had four years remaining on his prior contract, did not receive a raise as part of the new contract over any existing years so we are valuing the deal as a five year contract rather than a one year extension. In essence the contract was simply a restructure for salary cap purposes rather than a new extension. The total contract value is $18.75 million with $6.75 million guaranteed, including a $2.25 million signing bonus. The new contract reduced Hekker's 2019 cap number by $1.8 million.
