Dez Bryant's contract with Saints heavy on incentives

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Dez Bryant signed his contract on Thursday, details of which were reported first by Adam Schefter of ESPN. Per Schefter’s report, the former Dallas Cowboy’s one-year deal is worth as much as $1.75 million.

But that $1.75 million figure doesn’t tell the whole story. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, $500,000 of that is an incentive for receptions — though we don’t know the specific benchmarks Bryant will need to hit. And with half of the 2018 regular season already in the books, his base salary of $1.25 million will be prorated to $600,000; that means weekly game checks of about $75,000. For perspective, it’s only $21,777 more than the veteran minimum for a player with Bryant’s experience.

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

I'd play for that but you guys would hate me more than you hate me now.

Dont worry, I'd get hurt the first play. If I make the second game, it is because no one is covering me.
Barry from MS and K Major like this.

Well... Dez got hurt even before the first play. He didn't even make the first game.

I guess it just wasn't in the cards, was kinda looking forward to the Drew-Dez connection.

We might want to setup a bit of an injury settlement with Dez and reach a verbal with him that if he can come back from the Achilles in a year or so we are in good standing to renegotiate with him if we have a need.

A thirty year old with a torn Achilles half-way through this season? No thanks. I’m guessing that he’s done as an NFL player but I’m almost certain that he wouldn’t even sniff the field next year.
