Breaking down Kenny Britt's contract

EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The details of new St. Louis Rams receiver Kenny Britt's contract are in and, like the other free-agent deals the Rams struck this offseason, Britt's deal is the definition of a one-year prove it contract.

Britt's deal with the Rams won't break the bank, but there is potential for Britt to earn some reachable incentives if he can stay healthy and produce. Likewise, if Britt is unable to provide much, the Rams can part ways with him without much lost.

Here's how Britt's one-year contract looks for those of you keeping score at home:


Base salary: $1 million

Roster bonus: Up to $250,000 -- Britt received a $50,000 roster bonus on April 7, which is treated as signing bonus. If he is on the 53-man roster for first game, he gets an additional $100,000 roster bonus and from there he can earn an additional roster bonus of $6,250 per game for every game he's amongst the 46 active players on game day up to a maximum of $100,000. For now, $75,000 of the possible additional roster bonus counts against the cap based on his 2013 playing time.

Cap value: $1.375 million

Cash value: $1.4 million

Guaranteed money: $500,000
