More Details On Marcus McNeill’s New Contract

Thanks to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, we now have a more in-depth view of the new contract that was recently signed by Pro-Bowl offensive tackle Marcus McNeill. Below is a portion of the article by Acee.

Marcus McNeill’s contract is an excellent example of why we use the term “virtually” guaranteed when reporting such deals.

Based on a total of $48.985 million over six years (including 2010) McNeill becomes the fifth-highest-paid left tackle in the NFL in terms of average per year.

But while it is likely he will make at least $24.485 million between now and 2012, there is very little money ($2.235 million) absolutely guaranteed.

The contract greatly protects the Chargers against injury and also gives them the flexibility to go another direction after every season.
