Johnson signs contract for $1.25 Million Raise, plus incentives

ProFootballTalk has reported that the new deal Chris Johnson signed today was only $1.25 Million more than his previous contract.  Johnson’s base salary will still be at $550,000 but the $1.25 Million will be added as a signing bonus, PFT reports.

However, the deal does have some incentives and bonuses to reach an estimated $2.035 Million.  The two incentives in the deal are that Johnson rush for 700 yards and average 4.5 yards per carry.

The deal is a quick fix to the long term deal, and hopefully can be renegotiated during the 2011 offseason to something long term.

    I’d keep on signing one-year deals until I could become an unrestricted free agent, and then sign with a team that actually has a chance.
