These incentives are based on things such as: playing time, Pro Bowl and All-Pro selections, interceptions and the 49ers making playoffs.
Wilson adds that Asomugha will count $1.775 million against their salary cap this season.
Asomugha signed a one-year deal that could be worth as much as $3 million if these incentives are reached.
- Adam Schefter reports that Asomugha receives a one-year deal worth up to $3 million from San Francisco.
- Schefter mentions that Asomugha’s 2013 base salary is $1.35 million.
- Nnamdi reportedly asked for no guaranteed money to be included in his contract, according to Schefter.
- Mike Garafolo adds that Asomugha will be $4 million from the Eagles this season.
It’s stunning to see Asomugha ask for no guaranteed money to be included in his contract. Although, he’s still be paid by the Eagles and has made plenty of money in recent years.
Asomugha was reportedly “torn” between signing with the 49ers or the Saints. It seemed as though New Orleans could be the favorites given that they could offer him more playing time and the familiarity of playing Rob Ryan’s defensive scheme.
Previous reports have indicated that the 49ers will force Asomugha to compete with Carlos Rodgers for the starting job.
