It was the first of the many surprising things Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace unleashed on us during free agency.
Pace signed veteran tight end Jimmy Graham to a two year $16million deal.
The deal immediately came with criticism as many believe that Graham is done as a productive NFL player.
Now that the deal is officially done, we've learned some of the details of the contract.
Graham will get a $6million signing bonus while he'll get a 2020 guaranteed salary of $3million and a $6.9million salary in 2021 which isn't guaranteed.
Graham was also given a full no trade clause.
So when all is said and done it could actually be a one year deal worth $9million.
What do you think of the contract details?
Breaking down Jimmy Graham's two-year, $16M deal with the Bears: $6M signing bonus, $3M 2020 base salary (guaranteed). 2021: $6.9M base salary, $100K workout bonus. Plus incentives to up the ante and a rare no-trade clause.
