Fascinating Salary Structure for Orlando Scandrick and Gerald Sensabaugh


As reported by AdamJT13 of Cowboyszone.com. He's proven reliable over the past few years so I have no reason to doubt their authenticity.

Orlando Scandrick

6 year $28 million contract with $10 million guaranteed

Signing Bonus: $3 million

2012 - $7.1 million

2013 - $2.0 million

2014 - $4.1 million

2015 - $5.6 million

2016 - $5.0 million

Analysis: A fascinating structure. First off, time to stop talking about Cortland Finnegan or Brent Grimes because Jerry ain't paying a guy $7.1 million to be a nickle corner.

The way I read this contract structure is that he's got next year to prove he can be a starting CB. If he fails his $2 million 2013 contract makes him a viable nickle CB before being inevitably cut that offseason. Not coincidentally, his guaranteed money ends after 2013. If he succeeds then he effectively becomes a $5 million a year starting CB.

Gerald Sensabaugh

6 year $22.5 million contract with $8 million guaranteed

Signing Bonus: $4 million

2012 - $1 million

2013 - $3 million

2014 - $4 million

2015 - $4 million

2016 - $6.5 million

Analysis: When I heard the Cowboys signed Sensabaugh to a similar deal to O.J. Atogwe I cried a little inside. But this insanely back-loaded deal warms my heart like hot cocoa after a day outside in the snow. The guaranteed money only runs through the 2013 season where he will be inevitably cut for poor performance. The signing bonus pro-ration will make the cost of cutting him about $3 million. Sensabaugh's agent is banking on him playing just good enough for the Cowboys to not want to eat that signing bonus pro-ration. He won't, this is a 2-year deal.
