How is it a "sham"?

The total value of the contract can/could reach 126 mil if clauses are met... no one ever said it was guaranteed. And we all know those contracts never see the end.

... and he could receive as little as $25.9 million.
Meh, not bad for kissing your biceps and if you budget a little bit, .

So my question would be, does a performance-laden contract like this count against a cap in it's full amount at the beginning of a season prior to performance-incentives being met? Or are they just considered to be 'out-there' in some sort of gray area of money that's not guaranteed?

This is how contracts should be anyway, might motivate. Surprised the players union allowed a performance based contract.
Of course, having to settle for 25 Million is just aweful, lol.

Is there a clause for just how many times he needs to kiss his biceps before the contract implodes?

IDK, but he sure doesn't seem to be doing it as much lately, . Oh well, somewhere it says, "pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall, #kaepernicking" ... I added the #kaepernicking, ... a little 'poetic license', .

Hopefully the whole experience humbles him a bit and we can get back to just playing football, ... for the 'gamers' and just in time for Christmas:
