Details of MJD's contract emerge

The National Football Post has obtained details of the contract Maurice Jones-Drew signed with the Oakland Raiders on Friday, ending his eight-year stay with the Jaguars.

It’s a three-year deal worth a potential $7.5 million.

Jones-Drew was reportedly asking for $3-3.5 million per year last week, but he was smart in bringing his asking price down so he could get on a roster.

The deal

This year: $1.2 million base and $1.3 million bonus ($2.5 million cap hit)

Next year: $2.4 million base and $100,000 bonus ($2.5 million cap hit)

2016: $2.4 million base and $100,000 bonus ($2.5 million cap hit)

It appears this year’s base salary is guaranteed and the potential bonus monies are the incentives that Jones-Drew mentioned in his conference call with Bay Area reporters on Friday night.
