Kareem Jackson's Deal Is Worth $16.3 Million With $10.35 Million Guaranteed

We wrote earlier that Houston signed their first round rookie cornerback Kareem Jackson, who was selected 20th overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. This is somewhat important in the scheme of projecting floors, ceilings, contracts, etc.. in regards to the Bengals 21st overall draft pick, Jermaine Gresham.

According to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain (not the yippie-kay-yay-yay version), Jackson's deal is worth a maximum of $16.3 million with $10.35 million guaranteed.

This knowledge will go a long way for the Bengals, who now have their ceiling set. Gresham's potential deal will not hit a higher maximum salary, nor will it have a higher guarantee. Additionally, the 23rd overall pick, Bryan Bulaga was given a deal with a maximum value of $14.75 million with $8.76 million. Even though the 22nd overall pick, Demaryius Thomas would set the actual floor, what the Bengals now have is a measure of what Gresham should be offered.
