Denard officially signs

Submitted by rb4kb8 on July 9th, 2013 at 11:26 AM
His first contract. A 4-year deal a coding to the Dan Patrick Show. The didn't say how much, bc they wanted to keep talking about him being an OW. Offensive Weapon.

While not specifically about Denard's contract, this article here (HERE) from the National Football Post back in May gave some insight into the amounts and structure of rookie deal this yeat by round. 

According to their figuring: "The median deal in the fifth round should be worth $2,348,800 over four years with a $188,880 signing bonus."

If they did the math right, I would assume that the general range we're talking about here.

For rookies, the signing bonus is the only guaranteed part of the deal, so yes, if the Jaguars cut Denard tomorrow he would only get the signing bonus.  Veterans can sign deals that include guaranteed money in the form of signing bonuses, roster bonuses, and guaranteed base salary as well.

to draft Denard somewhere around the 12th round of my fantasy draft this year and laugh every time he helps me beat one of the OSU homers that comprise 75% of said league.

I really hope the jags find a way to utilize Denard and showcase his abilities. I have never followed them much, so I really have no idea if they have the type of innovative coordinators to do that, but I hope it's the case and he doesn't just sit around on the bench.

I would imagine he is a marketing gold mine too once he gets a few games under his belt and we start seeing 70 yd TD runs on Sportscenter.
