Hollywood Brown’s contract with Chiefs very reasonable

The Arizona Cardinals lost receiver Marquise Brown in free agency to the Kansas City Chiefs. Brown got a one-year deal to join the defending champions.

the details of the contract are out, shared by Albert Breer.

It is basically a one-year, $7 million deal.

He gets a $3 million signing bonus and a base salary of $3.5 million. He will get a $250,000 workout bonus for participating in the offseason program at the team facility. He can make up to $250,000 in per-game roster bonuses.

That is the $7 million.

He can earn up to $4 million in incentives.

Up to $1 million comes in touchdowns. He will make $500K for five scores, $750K for six and the full $1 million for seven touchdowns.

Up to $1.5 million comes in playing time. If he plays 45% of the Chiefs’ offensive snaps, he will make $500K. That goes up to $625K if he reaches 52.5%, then to $750K if he reaches 60% and a mac of $1.5 million for 75% of the snaps.

Another $1.5 million can be earned through yardage. He will make $500K for 500 yards, $625K for 625 yards, $750K for 750 yards and the full $1.5 million if he reaches 1,000 on the season.

These terms look like a deal the Cardinals easily could have made if they wanted him back, unless he was only willing to structure the deal like that for the defending champs and to be able to play with Patrick Mahomes.
