Details Of Quarterback Matt Scott's Contract

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The figures behind recently-signed backup quarterback Matt Scott's contract were released on Tuesday.

When the Jacksonville Jaguars selected quarterback Blake Bortles at No.3 overall in this year's draft, there was writing on the wall down south. It just so happens that Matt Scott was the guy on the chopping block, as Jacksonville waived him last week. The Cincinnati Bengals quickly scooped Scott off of waivers, even though they had Jason Campbell in the fold, as well as fifth round pick, A.J. McCarron.

Scott, an undrafted rookie free agent out of Arizona last year, spent the entire 2013 season on the Jaguars' practice squad. On Tuesday, Coley Harvey of ESPN sent out the contract details.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, Scott will make $420,000 for the 2014 season and $510,000 in 2015. Those figures equate to his base salary. He has no bonuses coming. None of his money is guaranteed. If he gets cut this season, he'll provide the Bengals a cap savings of $420,000. If he gets cut next year, he could provide a $510,000 cap savings.

Harvey and Cincy Jungle's own Jason Marcum both believe that Scott is a body for camp and will likely be vying for a spot on the practice squad. Cincinnati does have a vacant spot on their practice squad because of their recent release of Zac Robinson.
