Michael Huff Contract: 4 Years, $32 Million

According to a tweet by J.I. Halsell, Michael Huff received a contract worth $8 million per season over four years.

Update: Jerry McDonald reports more detail: $12 milion is in the form of guarantees. $7.315 million signing bonus, $685,000 base salary in 2011, $4 million base salary 2012-2014. The 2012 base salary is guaranteed.

Eric Weddle received five years, $40 million with $19 million in guarantees.

It’s not completely out of line with expectations, but the slow market for Huff’s services insinuated his deal would be more affordable. Not the case.

Huff will now have to prove 2010 was not a fluke and he really is an all-pro safety.

    Looks like $5.0 million a year not $8.0 million per Jerry McDonald.

  • Read that risk of re-tearing same ACL is about half that of non-reconstructed ACL, but the type of graft is also a factor.

  • @FO_ScottKacsmar No doubt. It's part of what makes him so good. Figures out quickly where he wants to go and goes there.

  • We've never really received a reasonable explanation as to why Green never gets more playing time to my knowledge.
