Last week, the Green Bay Packers agreed to a multi-year contract with soon-to-be free agent Letroy Guion. According to reports, the deal pays $11.25 million over the next three seasons. Now, per ESPN's Rob Demovsky, we have the year-to-year breakdown of the defensive tackle's compensation.
For the most part, Guion takes home the same amount of money each year of the deal, earning salaries of $3,516,666, $3,666,666 and $3,716,668 over the next three seasons respectively. The contract also contains $50,000 per-game-active bonuses in all years. Like most of the contracts they sign, the Packers structured Guion's deal using the "pay as you go" model, meaning they can get out at any time with minimal penalty.
While not an overly lucrative deal for a starting nose tackle, it incentivizes Guion to take care of himself and avoid any off-the-field issues such as his arrest last February.
Though Green Bay inked Guion to a new deal, the team may still have more moves to make along the defensive line. B.J. Raji, the team's starter at nose tackle last season, hits the free-agent market next month and could garner considerable interest. If the Packers prefer to keep Raji in town, they likely need to agree to terms before other teams can negotiate with him.
