•Pugh got a signing bonus of $4,449,744 when he signed on Thursday.
•His base salary for the 2013 through 2016 seasons totals $3,510,384.

•If Pugh is on the 53-man roster in 2016, on either the 2nd or 3rd day after rosters are set, then he receives his roster bonus of $385,770.
•If he gets his roster bonus for making the team in 2016, then the total of the contract rises to $8,345,898 for 4 years, which it should pending Pugh stinking up the joint or being injured.


I asked Jason Fitzgerald the following question on Twitter from my Giants Salary Cap twitter feed:

  • As can be seen above, the small roster bonus Pugh received in year 4 in 2016 is for $385,770.
  • His 2013 cap number---as stated here a million times before---is $1,517,436.
