1. Signing bonus: $20 million.

2. 2023 base salary: $3 million, fully guaranteed.

3. 2024 base salary: $11 million, $7 million of which is fully guaranteed at signing. The amount becomes fully guaranteed on the fifth day of the 2024 waiver system.

  1. If $7M of the 2024 amount is guaranteed at signing, wouldn’t the contract be “as little as” 1 year for $30M?

    Sure looks like it’s all about money, not winning…

    Maybe he’s had his fill of “winning” in Denver?

  3. No team knows Jones better than Denver, odd they chose to pay Allen instead of a guy they drafted… wonder why

  4. Harris, Johnson and Jones. Broncos defensive guys that went to the Seahawks. Usually see stuff like this with coordinators that become coaches
