Charting Contracts for the Bengals 2009 Rookie Class

As we wrote in a preview post, the Bengals tend to sign a majority of their picks in the week leading up to training camp. However, sometimes they do things differently. Like signing four of their 11 draft picks in June. The following is a chart that we'll (hopefully) update when the team signs their rookies.

* The deal includes $21 million guaranteed. Another $8 million is available through incentives. The Bengals can get away with paying Smith just $26 million over four years by not picking up a two-year extension option in 2010. They're also off the hook for half of Smith's weekly game check anytime he reports over 350 pounds. [RotoWorld]

** Deal is includes a fourth-year escalator clause that, if triggered, could reach a maximum value of $3.47 million.
