WPB Dawg Fan Posted December 1, 2008 Report Share Posted December 1, 2008 These are the contracts for BQ and DA: BQ 8/7/2007: Signed a five-year, $9.25 million contract. The deal contains $7.75 million guaranteed, including a $4.3 million roster bonus in the second year. Another $11 million ($5M in 2010, $5.9M in 2011) is available though escalators in 2010 and 2011 based on Quinn taking at least 55% of the snaps in each of the first two years or at least 70% in his third season. Another $9.8 million is available, but is unlikely to be earned. 2008: $370,000, 2009: $655,000, 2010-2011: $700,000, 2011: Free Agent DA 2/29/2008: Signed a three-year, $24 million contract. The deal contains $14.5 million in guarantees, including a $7 million signing bonus. Another $1 million is available through incentives based on Pro Bowls and performance. 2008: $950,000, 2009: $1.45 million (+ $5 million roster bonus), 2010: $7.45 million (+ $2 million roster bonus), 2011: Free Agent The keys are bolded: In 2009 the contracts are: BQ - $655, 000 DA - $6,450,000 In 2010 the contracts (if you assume BQ starts) are: BQ - $5,700,000 (includes $5M kicker to base) DA - $9,450,000 (includes $2M roster bonus) In 2011: BQ - $6,600,000 (includes $5.9M kicker to base) DA - FA So for those claiming that BQ costs more than DA....not quite...even if BQ starts for the next 2 years....BQ will cost the Browns a total of $6.35M and DA will cost $15.9M....even counting BQ's 2011 salary, he only costs $12.95M, which is STILL less than DA for the next 2 years. Now, who do you REALLY think will be traded this off-season??? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
