Beyond commanding the most overall money and the most guaranteed, they just needed to make room for it -- something they did by releasing cornerback Chris Houston.
Ebron, the No. 10 pick in May's draft, has a four-year deal with a club option for a fifth year, like all first-round picks. All of Ebron's money will be guaranteed.
He received a $7,228,472 signing bonus along with his base salary and roster bonuses -- all guaranteed.
Let's start with his base salaries: $420,000 in 2014; $776,779 in 2015; $1,233,558 in 2016 and $1,590,337 in 2017. He also has roster bonuses of $200,000 in 2015, $300,000 in 2016 and $500,000 in 2017. All are fully guaranteed.
Then there is the most important thing, his salary-cap number. His cap charge will be $2,227,118 in 2014, $2,783,897 in 2015, $3,340,676 in 2016 and $3,897,455 in 2017. His signing bonus is spread out as a $1,807,118 proration over the four-year deal.
In other words, he should have plenty of money to pay for his wedding to North Carolina women's basketball player Brittany Rountree.
