Sam Darnold Signs Rookie Deal With Jets, Gets Bonus As Lump Sum 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jul 31, 2018 2:50 am

Sam Darnold signed his rookie deal with the New York Jets on Monday.

Darnold was slotted to a four-year, $30.2 million deal.

The deal includes offset language, which the Jets wanted but that hadn't been part of the negotiations in recent weeks. The Jets agreed to change their position on default language regarding the guaranteed money, which had been a major sticking point. 

Darnold also becomes the first top-five pick to get his bonus at signing as a lump sum.

Sadly this is likely a leech agent behind these stalled talks.

Sam Darnold is a big name and the agent really milked it.

If that’s the case, that means he’s doing his job well.
