According to Mike Florio, the extension is a little over $44 million and when added to his final year, it becomes a six-year, $48 million contract. The deal also reportedly includes a $13 million signing bonus.
Thanks to non-guaranteed roster bonuses payable on the third day of the 2015 and 2016 league years, Pouncey will pocket $17.75 million by March of next year. He gets another $3.5 million in March 2016.
