Yup, I mentioned this in a post in late June-
" In addition to offset language already discussed, there are a couple other miscellaneous structural items to be negotiated, IE: bonus payment terms and structure etc. While the total numbers may be written in stone, how and when bonus allocations are paid and is distributed is negotiable. So there could be a little glitch there, too. "
Total money and guarantees are strict, but how it is distributed and when is totally negotiable. Both player and agent get paid from it, so they both want more earlier, I'm sure.
Still surprises me he had a 3rd round grade on him what a steal we got him. Dude is a stud and I'm excited to get him back but I hope we take it slow and allow him to heal properly because I think this guy can be a diffrence maker on the line for years too come
