Plenty of free-agency deals fully guarantee two years. The agreement to be officially signed by center Corey Linsley with the Chargers does not.

Per a source with knowledge of the terms, Linsley’s deal has $17 million fully-guaranteed at signing, in the form of a $13 million signing bonus and a $4 million 2021 salary. The $9 million base salary for 2022 is guaranteed only for injury at signing; it becomes fully guaranteed on the second day of the 2022 league year.

This gives the Chargers an out after one season, if they’re willing to pay Linsley $17 million and then walk away. They can keep him in 2022 with only $9 million in cash payments. In 2023, he makes $10.5 million. In 2024, the salary becomes $11.5 million. In 2025, he has a $2.5 million roster bonus due on the third day of the league year, and a base salary of $12 million.

The five-year full package of $62.5 million pays out $12.5 million per year. That ties Linsley with Ryan Kelly of the Colts.

  1. ONLY 9 million in cash payments.to most people in the world 9 million is a great amount of money never to be seen in our bank accounts in a lifetime of labor.making 9 million sound trivial is absurd in any scenerio.

  2. He played hurt last year but the green bay guards gave up more sacks than anyone else in the league. Hopefully he gets some help with the new team?

    Making up false stats is typical for purple trolls, especially the one above. Green Bay tied Indy for 2nd-fewest sacks allowed in 2020, with 21. Behind only Pittsburgh with 14. Jealousy doesn’t look good on anyone, but I guess when that’s all you’ve got, you go with it, right araiani? Keep polishing that empty trophy case up der in da nort woods.
