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.
