Vander Esch, 21, was taken with the No. 19 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft by the Cowboys. According to OverTheCap.com, he received a $11,847,784 contract that includes a $6,696,568 signing bonus.
The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Cowboys to pick up in 2021. It’s worth mentioning that the fifth-year option is only guaranteed for injury and won’t prevent the two parties from working on a long-term extension.
During his three-year college career at Boise State, Vander Esch recorded 188 total tackles, 13 tackles for loss, five sacks, three interceptions, six pass defenses, one fumble recovery, and four forced fumbles.
