Huge signing bonus. Herbert will get a dollar more or something after that. the rest of the rookie deals will see shorter extensions. Burrow and Herbert are worth the Mahomes type deals in length. it would be better to drop the signing bonus and increase the other methods of guarantees to allow more flexibility with shifting cap space in future years. the Mahomes contract was only $10M signing bonus, but had large guarantees that were triggered well before Mahomes could be cut https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/kansas-city-chiefs/patrick-mahomes-21751/ Quote Patrick Mahomes signed a 10 year, $450,000,000 contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, including a $10,000,000 signing bonus, $141,481,905 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $45,000,000. In 2023, Mahomes will earn a base salary of $5,500,000, a roster bonus of $34,400,000 and a workout bonus of $550,000, while carrying a cap hit of $46,793,381 and a dead cap value of $94,880,143.
