Contract Notes

Thomas Davis signed a three year, $18 million contract with the Carolina Panthers on June 16, 2015 that included $10 million in full guarantees. Another $1.5 million is guaranteed for injury only in 2016. Davis can earn per game roster bonuses of $500,000 in 2016 and $750,000 in 2017. According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Davis received a $10 million signing bonus. Davis had been scheduled to earn $7.5 million in 2015 on his prior contract and his compensation is increased by $2.75 million. Because of the size of the guarantee, I am considering this a new three year contract rather than a two year extension.
