Considering he's the highest paid defensive player ever, it should be exaggerated. Orlando Pace' signing bonus was $15 million. The money Clements got is Peyton Manning money, it's ridiculous.

I don't even think he's a top 10 player at his position. Well, maybe. I'd probably have him anywhere in the 8-12 range. But still, that is a lot of money.

I can't look at this as anything more than 6 years/43.5 mil, which makes it a reasonable signing given the lack of available top-tier cornerbacks and the amount of money available on the free market.

Good luck to both parties, I can't wait to see Clements in a 49ers uniform.

Oh gosh he's good but the figure is just crazy. More power to him though for being able to get that contract, looks like Adalius might ask the 49ers for a similar contract or go to NE.

It's pretty annoying every person that comes in here and says "OMG SO MUCH MONEY!!!11!!1!!" when it isn't that crazy of a deal for a top 10 CB.

How much was the franchise level for CB? I'm guessing it was close to $7.5mil. I don't think that is crazy money for Clements. Now, if it was really 8 years and $80 mil, then it would be insane, but 6 for 44 isn't out of line for a top CB.

Which is why NFLDC is great: we can discern the real figure behind a pretty number and share it among us, meanwhile the "World-wide Leader in Sports" doesn't so much as sniff at the details - even when "analysts" are brought into discussion.

If Champ Bailey was a FA, he better have got an 8 year deal for 150 mill.

It's basically a 6 year 45 million dollar deal. No way he sees years 7 and 8. GREAT signing for SF getting the best defensive player in the market. Top 5 CB's don't hit FA very often.

For those who are slower:

He.
Will.
Not.
See.
$80 million.

He's making a little over 7 million a year for the first 6 years.
7.25 x 6 = 43.5

That means he makes 37 million over the last 2 years, you really think he's going to see that money?

Don't be naive. This is a 6 year 43.5 million dollar contract.
