RB gets $100 million sallary!


http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2011/9/10/2416795/adrian-peterson-contract-minnesota-vikings

So AP gets a HUGE payday on top of his already big rookie deal.  The above link tells of $36 million guaranteed - topping CJ's deal by a cool $6 mil.  More comparisons after the jump

While the details aren't fully released at this very moment, we do have some numbers to compare:

CJ's deal is 6 years for $55 mil, $30 guaranteed.  This to a player that has the most yards in the past 3 years and no injuries.

AP's deal is 7 years for $100 mil, $36 guaranteed.  He's a beast - no question - but has missed playing time to injury.

 

I'm curious as to the details of both contracts.  I think we have seen a breakdown of CJ's coming around $13 a year with incentives to be at training camp in the future.  I have read that the other $100 mil. contracts (namely Vick's) is a bunch of whooey and the last year or two of it won't count.  CJ is younger and MIGHT see another payday - but his skills will most likely diminish at the end of this contract.  AP plays a MUCH more bruising style of play, though.  We can watch these two players and their franchises to see how these contracts *pay* off for each.  Then we have Arizona that simply had to overpay Fitzy to stay competitive.  Come on everyone!  The season is about to begin, let's have one more contract pissing contest for old time's sake! ;)
