Contract Breakdown Of Steelers WR Plaxico Burress, LS Greg Warren & TE/FB David Johnson
The contracts of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress, long snapper Greg Warren and tight end/fullback David Johnson have now all be filed to the NFLPA and here is a rundown on each of them.
Burress received a one-year qualifying contract which comes with a reduced salary cap charge. He is scheduled to earn a base salary of $940,000 in 2013 and received a $65,000 signing bonus, which is the maximum he could get for that type of contract. He will have a cap charge of $620,000 in 2013 with that contract. Should he not make the final 53 man roster his dead money charge in 2014 will only be $65,000.
Like Burress, Warren also received a one-year qualifying contract. His base salary, however, is scheduled to be $840,000. Like Burress, he also received a $65,000 signing bonus. The cap hit for Warren will be $620,000.
Johnson received a one-year deal as well, but he does not have enough accrued years to qualify for a qualifying contract that was given top both Burress and Warren. His base salary is $630,000 and that will also be his cap charge as he did not receive a signing bonus. There will be not be any dead money associated with him should he not make the Steelers final 53 man roster.
