Quote:
"The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed Maurkice Pouncey to a five-year, $44 million contract extension, a deal that makes him the NFL's highest-paid center.

A league official confirmed the deal, which was first reported by Pro Football Talk, to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter."



Probably a good deal for them.

Does he really deserve best center in the league money?

I know he was top 5 before his injury or so and definitely top 10, but he's now the highest paid center.

Still its good the Steelers locked up one of their best players I'm just curious about his worth in other people's eyes on here.


Side Note: This makes me feel really good about Kelce being tied for the 7th highest paid center when he was arguably the best center behind Mack.

He got more guaranteed money than Kaepernick.

That is blatantly false.

His signing bonus was higher.

Have to see the specifics still, but just looking at the base money, I'm not sure I'd like this deal if I was a Steelers fan. Low end top 10 player at a relatively low priority position does not warrant that, to me.

As expected, there’s plenty of fluff.

Technically, the deal has $61 million guaranteed, even though $6 million of the guaranteed salary could evaporate (more on that later). Either way, only $13.073 million is guaranteed at signing. It comes in the form of a $12.328 million signing bonus, a base salary of $645,000, and a workout bonus of $100,000.

For 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and part of 2018, the base salaries are guaranteed only for injury. On April 1 of each year, the guarantees convert from injury only to fully guaranteed. That gives the 49ers the ability to decide, in any given year, to move on from Kaepernick.

Than Kap and his agent are dumb for signing that contract.

I'm actually fine with this contract, completely fine. He isn't at the "low end" of anything when he is healthy, some bad luck put him down for the season in 2013. When he's healthy, imo, he's a Top 5 NFL Center.
