Amano's contract tops $25 million for five years

On Monday the Tennessee Titans and guard Eugene Amano agreed to terms on a new contract, and today Amano signed that deal — a deal that’s valued at more than $25 million for five years.

Multiple reports say it’s a five-year contract worth more than $25 million, with $10.5 million guaranteed, although there is a slight discrepancy on the total value of the deal. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Amano signed for five years and $26.25 million, while NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora is reporting that it’s a five-year, $25.7 million contract.

Amano will make $12 million in the first year of the contract and $18 million in the first three years of the deal.

La Canfora reports that Amano will receive a signing bonus of $7.25 million and base salaries of $5.265 million in 2010, $2.68 million in 2011, $3.18 million in 2012, $3.685 million in 2013 and $4.187 million in 2014.

    This won’t make it easy for multiple Pro-Bowler Logan Mankins to swallow his $3.3 Million dollar RFA tender from the Patriots. They better pony up with a long term deal or they’re going to have one pissed off lineman on their roster.

    I doubt Logan will blink at this deal…he’ll get 25 just to sign..
    Can someone explain to me why teams don’t offer huge salaries or option bonuses in year 1 of new deals given there is no cap?
    The only reason I can see is that option bonuses/salaries aren’t recoverable. But if it is a surefire talent, and a good attitude player, why not take the risk as the vikes have in the past?

    “Can someone explain to me why teams don’t offer huge salaries or option bonuses in year 1 of new deals given there is no cap?”
    The problem with front loading deals is that there is a concern that the player will lose motivation in the later years of the contract, when he is receiving less money.
    It requires the teams to trust the players will remember that they have already received the bulk of their money, and not try to break their deals early.
