Default Re: Ward signs four year deal....Updated w/ Financial Terms..

OK, so here's the numbers from the Post Gazette.. alittle different, but still the same ballpark,

Quote:
esterday morning, Ward signed a new five-year contract worth $27.5 million, according to sources familiar with the deal. It includes the largest signing bonus in club history, $9 million, plus a $1 million roster bonus that, combined with his salaries in the first three years of the deal, delivers to him the so-called "guaranteed" money he was seeking at $17 million, also the largest in club history.

That $17 million puts him among the top five receivers in guaranteed money in the NFL, according to those same sources.

If he plays the way he has over the past four years, Ward will receive incentives that push the total take to $30 million through 2009.

He receives a $5 million bonus now and another $4 million in early March when he receives another $1 million roster bonus. His annual salaries, starting this year, are $665,000, $2.75 million, $3.585 million, $4.7 million and $5.8 million.

"It was far more than I expected," Ward said.

I'm glad he was able to lock up another 5, that'll let us have a consistent WR for a while. Hopefully some of these newer recievers turn out like he did, and not end up like Plaxico.

I'm glad they were able to load some incentive money into the contract...it's a nice way to get the critics to shut up...

I was just re-reading his numbers.. WOW,, He got $5 million for a bonus while he made $1.7 million salary for the last 3 years..

Imagine taking your salary over the last 3 years and somebody just handing you a check for it.. How AWESOME would that be...???

How awesome would it be to play a sport and make that much money period. Way to go Hines this should be a good year as long as the Runningbacks can stay consistent.

The best part was that they gave it to him, he didn't demand it. He's worth it, once Bettis is gone he'll be the primary motivator on offense.

I think we all new that this deal would get done! But it is nice to see that it is over. Steelers front office couldnt handle the backlash, if they were to let Ward go.
