$22.5 million fully guaranteed for Maclin at signing

AP

In most cases the “guaranteed” money a player reportedly will receive is more (often much more) than the fully guaranteed money he’ll get.  For Chiefs receiver Jeremy Maclin, those numbers are the name.

Per a source with knowledge of the contract, Maclin’s $22.5 million guaranteed is fully guaranteed, via a $12 million signing bonus and fully guaranteed base salaries of $750,000 in 2015 and $9.75 million in 2016.

The rest of the contract consists of base salaries of $9.75 million in 2017, $10.75 million in 2018, and $10.75 million in 2019, and annual workout bonuses of $250,000.

The cap numbers are $3.4 million in 2015, $12.4 million in 2016, and $12.4 million in 2017, $13.4 million in 2018, and $13.4 million in 2019.

It’s a two-year, $22.5 million deal with an annual team option on the remaining $32.5 million over three.

  1. 2 year / 22.5 mil deal but he’d have roughly 7 Mil in dead money if cut after two years since it’s signing bonus vs roster bonus.
    So you’d think he’d at least see three years.Going into year 4, he’d have 5 Mil dead money vs 11 Mil salary

  2. Makes no sense.

    Receivers are plentiful, and to pay huge money to a good (But nowhere near great) player like Maclin, really makes little to no sense.

    But Andy is the GM, just like Chip is the GM in Philly, and all of us with Teams set up the correct way are watching with interest and amusement.

  3. Nothing against these guys getting paid, but the escalation of guaranteed money worries me.

    In baseball the result has been a lot of guys showing no hustle whatsoever. I hope it doesn’t happen to this league.

  4. Unless they take a top WR in the draft I won’t be touching Maclin on fantasy draft day lol

  5. I feel that the Chiefs mgmt. is losing their way. I think he is way overpaid. 12 million signing bonus???? Crazy. They let Rodney Hudson slip away. Bowe will be gone. Carr, Flowers, and many others are gone. They just “keep starting over” continuously. Never going to be a championship team that way.

    Except Andy is not the GM. John Dorsey is. Thanks for playing.

  7. Exeption here is that Maclin knows Reids system and fits it to a tee. He can play all positions of WR X,Y, and Z. Especially the Z position which is considered the #1 receiver spot in Reids system, aside from deep threat Wallace, Maclin is a great route runner. Though I do think is a bit much of guaranteed money for an injury prone receiver, hes worth every penny if he stays healthy.

  8. So , it’s okay to pay a boatload of money to Maclin , but it’s not okay to pay a lot of money to Mike Wallace — got it.

  9. Over paid. Maclin never had a 1000 yard receiving In a season under Reid and won’t this year. And when u have a QB who sucks throwing the ball downfield this makes even less sense. after year two years the cap hit will be way too high for a good but not great wr and they will either have to restructure or cut him. Wasted money

  10. Ha Maclin is good but noodle arm can’t get him the ball. You will miss D Bowe when he’s gone to a Team that actually uses wide receivers. I bet he has a better year than Maclin next year! Smith is a proven wr career killer.

    Who’s career has he derailed? Last I check he’s had a bunch of practice squad receivers along with some has-beens Bowe being the only one truly falling in that category.

    List them clearly you can back it easily.

  12. Smith has not had a receiver like Maclin to kill their career. If it weren’t for Vernon Davis and Jamaal Charles, one could say his WRs would’ve killed his career. Crabtree is over-rated, dropped even with Kaepernick, partly injury and partly him. Bowe will only do well with a QB who locks onto him and not spread the ball – the INTs don’t go on the receiver, just the QB and the team. WRs get the yards and TDs and look good, until they get older.

    The new faider center has a contract with $20 mil guaranteed.

    A center.

    $20 mil.

    Guaranteed.
    ————————–
    12.6M is fully guaranteed. None of it is prorated. Maclin signed a can-kick contract that will be on KCs books in future years. Hudson was expensive, but it helps the Raiders and hurts the Chiefs, no matter how you spin it.

    “It’s a two-year, $22.5 million deal with an annual team option on the remaining $32.5 million over three.”

    So its two years and Chiefs can cut ties at any point they like. So no he isn’t on the books for future years… Hudson is good and yes it hurts KC but hes not 8.9 /yr good but kudos on paying a good center about 2 mil over per yr, at least its not an over the hill veteran like last year, baby steps.

    Maclin’s cap number this year is 3.4M. Next year it’s 12.4M. That’s 15.8M, not 22.5M.
