News came out yesterday that Riley Reiff had agreed to his rookie contract and would be in camp on time. We knew it would be a four-year deal for around $8 million in total thanks to the way rookie contracts are structured under the current (I’m not calling it “new” after almost a year) CBA but the exact details were not announced. The details are now known thanks to a tweet from Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press:
Riley Reiff’s contract includes a $4.25 million signing bonus & a $325,000 roster bonus in 2015. None of money in Year 4 is guaranteed.

The signing bonus is slightly under the $4.27 million signing bonus given to Danny Watkins, last year’s number 23 pick. However, Reiff is due a bonus $250,000 larger prior to year four than the bonus included in Watkins’ deal.
