Details of Riley Reiff’s Contract Revealed


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:

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.
