The full Manningham numbers

On Friday, Alper linked to an item from Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com with some of the key numbers from the contract signed by receiver Mario Manningham with the 49ers.

Here’s the full rundown of all terms, from a source with knowledge of the contract.

1. $2 million signing bonus.

2.  $1.2 million base salary for 2012, fully guaranteed.

3.  $250,000 in total per-game roster bonuses for 2012.

4.  $100,000 workout bonus for 2012.

5.  $3.6 million base salary for 2013, $1.25 million of which is guaranteed for injury only.

6.  $250,000 roster bonus for 2013.

7.  $100,000 workout bonus for 2013.

8.  Incentives in each year based on the following factors:  $100,000 for 70 catches or $250,000 for 80 catches or $500,000 for 90 catches; $50,000 for 1,050 yards or $100,000 for 1,150 yards or $250,000 for 1,250 yards; $50,000 for nine touchdowns or $100,000 for 11 touchdowns or $250,000 for 13 touchdowns; and $250,000 for making it to the Pro Bowl.

So it’s a two-year deal with a base value of $7.5 million, a maximum value of $10 million, and $4.45 million guaranteed ($3.2 million fully guaranteed).

Again, it shows that making a clutch catch in a big moment doesn’t mean what it used to, and that teams no longer will allow one key play to overcome a so-so body of work.

    Maximize that contract Manningham!

    Alex maximized his contract last year and this year he helps the WRs do it. The 9ers passing game will surprise people and make the 9ers that much harder to beat. They will be even better next year.

    Prime example of why the 49ers are one of the smartest franchises in the league.

    “$250,000 per-game roster bonus for 2012.”

    Isn’t that another $4 Million for 16 games ???

    Or was that supposed to say 25K per game roster bonus ???

    They missed the one bonus that might make Mario a good WR

    Pay him everytime he runs the right route

    “Prime example of why the 49ers are one of the smartest franchises in the league.”

    They signed a second-tier free agent to a middle-of-the-road contract. The bar for ‘smart’ must be set amazingly low.

    One other thought why do the 49ers think they willl get better taking the scraps from the team they lost the NFC championship game too?

    If he was worth it the Giants would have kept him

    They sign players for what they’re worth. If you look around the league, very few franchises do the same.

    Even the precious Giants overpay players. Look at the contracts of Antrel Rolle and Chris Canty if you need an example.

    Sigh. Once again, people are underestimating Manningham. Before “the catch”, he was a very solid WR overshadowed by two beastly WRs. Not to mention the injuries he has dealt with.

    That is a damn smart contract.

    man wasnt it just a season prior that this guy had 9 td and almost a thousand yards? everyone bagging on him, but he got hurt.

    I wondered about that too.
    It must be 250K/16 = $15,625 per game.

    “Even the precious Giants overpay players. Look at the contracts of Antrel Rolle and Chris Canty if you need an example.”

    It’s not overpaying if you win two out of the last five Super Bowls. But if you want to relish in your team’s budgetary prowess when it’s been 18 years since they were in the big game, you go ahead and enjoy that.

    “Again, it shows that making a clutch catch in a big moment doesn’t mean what it used to, and that teams no longer will allow one key play to overcome a so-so body of work.”

    Someone should tell Dan the Fan and Mike Shannahan this. Cause Morgan hasn’t even had that clutch play yet and his contract was much larger than Manningham’s.

    I like Morgan but it would have been nice if he’d have had a clutch catch or two in a big game.

    It’s not so much a clutch catch driving the numbers or not doing so, but that Baalke doesn’t care about that until you do it for the 9ers. Til then you’re worth isn’t dictated by the past.

    Manningham has put up better numbers than Morgan. That’s FACT. The Skins overpaid Morgan to make sure he would go there for whatever QB they get. All well and good if they got Manning but I don’t see the need for a stable full of Receivers with nobody reasonable throwing to them. Shannahan should know this having worked with the 9ers and having Coached with Chokeland and Denver.

    Just the fact that the 9ers are looking for more weapons makes me happy. Low risk contracts with incentives are the perfect way to maximize effort and commitment from this type of guy. See all the incentives in Randy Moss’ contract. All they can do is succeed. No risk, all reward. And if they do everything to maximize the contracts, the 9ers will be a very scary offensive team indeed. Smart moves by the front office.
