Well, Rams tackle Jason Smith didn’t get close to $41.7 million guaranteed as the second overall pick in the draft.
But he won’t be forced to follow a fast-food diet anytime soon.
Per a league source, Smith will receive $33 million guaranteed on a six-year deal that voids to only five.
The duration is the key; based on a five-year haul, his average guaranteed money per year is $6.6 million.
And that’s $600,000 per year better than the five-year deal with $30 million guaranteed that tackle Jake Long, the first overall pick in 2008, received from the Dolphins.
The contract also has a maximum value of $61 million, if all bells and whistles are reached.
