Dwight Freeney wanted Osi Unenyiora type money and he got it. He gets a 2-year deal worth $8.75 million and it can escalate to $13.35 million if he reaches certain sack totals.
Per a source with knowledge of the deal, Freeney’s two-year contract with the Chargers carries a base value of $8.75 million.
The deal pays $5.25 million in 2013, via a $3.25 million signing bonus, $1.5 million in base salary, and a $500,000 roster bonus tied to Freeney’s presence on the weekly 46-man roster. – Pro Football Talk
Not exactly sure how that will look against the salary cap, but I think it should count for around $4M this year and around the same next. The cap is getting full and we still need to sign DJ Fluker. We will get some relief on June 1 and there will likely be a few guys hitting the streets around that date also. As much good talk there has been on Clary during these OTAs, I predict he will be on the streets come June 1.
