Contract Notes

Stefon Diggs signed a 5 year extension on July 31, 2018 with the Minnesota Vikings.  The extension is worth $72,000,000 with $40,007,000 in total guarantees.  $16,907,000 is guaranteed at signing including a $15,000,000 signing bonus.  The additional guarantees in 2019-2021 are injury only at signing, but likely vest early in each league year (awaiting more details on vesting scheduled).  Diggs is due a $100,000 workout bonus in 2019-2023 and $500,000 in roster bonuses paid per game as well in 2019-2023.
