theProf Posted March 8, 2012 Share Posted March 8, 2012 Breaking down DeCoud's contractMar 8 2:41PMBy Pat YasinskasLet’s take a look at the details of the contract signed by Atlanta safety Thomas DeCoud earlier this week.It’s a five-year deal that averages $3.5 million per season. But that number could grow.DeCoud received a $3 million signing bonus and will earn a base salary of $1.4 million this year with $1 million of that guaranteed. In 2013, his salary will rise to $1.9 million.DeCoud has a chance to earn some serious money after that if he has established himself as a solid player. In 2014, his salary jumps to $4.2 million and $2.25 million of that becomes guaranteed if he’s on the roster on the fifth day of the league year.In 2015, DeCoud’s base salary is scheduled to be $4 million, but it can grow by as much as $1.6 million if he meets playing-time requirements, has an unspecified number of interceptions and makes the Pro Bowl. In 2016, DeCoud is scheduled to make $4.2 million, but can increase that by up to another $1.9 million if certain incentives are met.
