Assuming that the Cincinnati Bengals officially match Andrew Hawkins' four-year deal that Cleveland had originally offered, the breakdown for his deal goes like this (courtesy of Aaron Wilson):
The deal is worth $12.2 million but can reach $13.1 million if he claims $900,000 worth of escalators built into his deal. The signing bonus is worth $3 million.
His $1.8 million base salary in 2014 is guaranteed. The contract grows to $2.3 million in base salary in 2015 with $500,000 guaranteed if there's an injury. During the final two years of the deal, Hawkins' base salary is $2.5 million and $2.6 million respectively -- not guaranteed.
With the contract being guaranteed in 2014, with $500,000 in 2015 (if an injury) and the $3 million signing bonus brings Hawkins' guarantee number to $5.3 million.
|2014||$1.8 million||$3 million signing bonus. Bonus and base salary guaranteed|
