Whereas it’s unimaginable to disregard what was reported on Monday – i.e. that there’s an arrest warrant for him in Louisiana, Aldon Smith is at the moment nonetheless on the Seattle Seahawks roster.
As such, a few of us are nonetheless considering what his contract with Seattle entails.
There’s no phrase (but) on any incentives, however OverTheCap has now revealed the opposite related info.
No massive shock . . . it’s a Veteran Minimal deal that qualifies for the Veteran Wage Profit.
Base wage: $990,000
Signing bonus: $137,500
Cap hit: $987,500
Presumably, the signing bonus was assured. Presumably, there’s most likely a mechanism for the Seahawks getting it again (or at the least getting a few of it again) in the event that they find yourself releasing him within the coming days (or weeks), based mostly on his newest incident.
If not, the $137,500 cap hit definitely gained’t maintain the Hawks from reducing ties if that’s what their “inside investigation” concludes they need to do.
Within the meantime, Aldon Smith’s contract is one other instance of the entrance workplace “killing it” this offseason – even when the signing itself doesn’t work out.
