Over the weekend, word broke of a new four-year deal between the Redskins and center Will Montgomery.  On Monday, the team announced the deal.

On Tuesday night, we’ve tripped across the numbers.

Per a source with knowledge of the contract, it’s a four-year, $12 million deal.  Montgomery receives no signing bonus, but he’ll be paid a $2.75 million roster bonus in 2012, along with a base salary of $700,000 and a workout bonus of $50,000.

In 2013, Montgomery’s base salary moves to $1.85 million.  He’ll also receive a roster bonus of $250,000 and a workout bonus of $50,000.

In 2014, the salary moves to $2.625 million, with another roster bonus of $250,000 and a workout bonus of $50,000.

In the final year of the deal, the salary becomes $3.125 million, with yet another roster bonus of $250,000 and a workout bonus of $50,000.

The cap numbers, if you care and if you’re still awake, are $3.5 million in 2012, $2.15 million in 2013, $2.925 million in 2014, and $3.425 million in 2015.

  1. He’s developed into a decent starter. I think he’s more ideal as a interior depth guy, but he’s a decent starter who gives bulk and experience. On the OL, they need some more interior competition, but the main issue is settling RT, where Jammal Brown was uneven at best. There’s some young assets to look at (like Willie Smith), but they definitely need a strong challenger there, unless Jammal is 100% (even then, he has no guaranteed money left, so he might be on the chopping blocks anyways).

    Oh, wait, most importantly, Trent Williams needs to Just Say No, and improve.

  2. Sorry staticmic but ever since I was surrounded by 3 6ft8 male pigskin fans in sun dresses wigs makeup and pignoses. on the nfl draft line.I’ve had a healthy hate for the redskins. Can understand how dressing up like ms piggy on sudays represents football or the redskins.sound like a secret fetish to me.

  3. Will is the type of character guy Shannahan is looking for. He brought that VA Tech Hokie “lunch pail” with him to Ashburn, and earned a contract with it. Good for him.

  4. Ok, there’s no ‘character’ assesment in Shannahan’s litmus test. This should be obvious by now. But if I need to review the qualifications, #1 he was a Raider, #b he coached Romanowski, and #& – two star players are on the verge of being suspended for a year for stupid shti.

    There may be other folks in the org who are lobbying for ‘character guys’ but between the owner & the Shannahans’ this can’t be a priority.

    But all that aside, the numbers won’t be that steep when we factor rookie caps, no?

    And MikeBe, you had to be there. Hate away.
