The Seattle Seahawks have the day off, and will resume practice Thursday morning. So there will be no practice report today.
Brian McIntyre of NFL.com has contract details on Seattle defensive end Chris Clemons’ contract extension.
According to the report, Clemons could earn $22 million over the next three seasons, with an additional $4 million available in base salary escalators tied to the number of sacks that he produces over the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
McIntyre reports that Clemons received a $6.5 million signing bonus, and his $2 million base salary in 2012 is fully guaranteed. So the $8.5 million more than doubles the $3.85 million in base salary and incentives Clemons could have made this season.
Clemons is due to make $6 million in 2013, but only $1.5 million of that is guaranteed. His base salary in 2014 is $7.5 million, none of which is guaranteed.
So that’s $10 million in fully guaranteed money for Clemons, with him likely making $14.5 million over the first two years of his contract if his production does not slip.
