Structure Of Louis Delmas' Contract Shows Lions Taking Minimal Financial Risk
The Detroit Lions thought enough of safety Louis Delmas to give him a new two-year contract last week, but most of the money in the deal is tied to playing-time incentives that Delmas will only earn if he’s on the field.
Delmas, who has missed 13 games over the past two seasons because of knee injuries, got a $1-million signing bonus and has a minimum base salary of $715,000 this year, but he can earn another $1.75 million if he plays in all 16 games.
According to language in his contract, if Delmas plays 42% of the Lions’ defensive snaps this year, he’ll make an additional $109,375 for every game he’s on the 46-player game-day roster.
Next year, Delmas is due a base salary of $5.5 million and has a $500,000 roster bonus.
