Bryant gets $32 million guaranteed upon signing the deal. The full $45 million becomes guaranteed on March 15, 2016, the first day of the 2016 league year.
The Cowboys used the franchise tag on Bryant in March, which would have paid him $12.823 million for next season, but Bryant continually expressed his desire for a bigger deal. After months of back and forth between the two sides, they were finally able to reach an agreement before the July 15 deadline for long-term contracts.
Last season, Bryant was one of the top receivers in the league, and now he’ll be paid like one. Although he won’t earn as much as Calvin Johnson, who signed a seven-year, $113.45 million contract with the Detroit Lions in 2012, Bryant still got the pay raise he was seeking.
In England, where fans of all 32 teams will spend lots of money to travel to Wembley for their once- or maybe twice-annual NFL fix, that’s a terrible draw. And the Brits know that: they follow free agency and the draft and play fantasy football. In terms of NFL IQ, they’re really well-spoken.
Most European NFL fans already have a team. Remember that stupid guy from college who saw a Guy Ritchie film and woke up the next day as a lifelong Manchester United or Arsenal fan?
