    Its official! CJ has signed a 53.5 million 4 year deal, 30 million guaranteed (that's about 13.5 million a year) - Per Wyatt

    The four years are added onto the remaining 2 years on his contract. He is signed through 2016

    Salary goes to 13 million for 2011 and he will make 31 million over the next 3 years, 30 mill guaranteed. -Jason La Canfora

    It averages out to 9.21 mill a year over six years. -PFT

    Finally. At $13.5 million per season it's big money, but it's not crazy big (Larry Fitzgerald got $15 million per). And it's only 4 years, so the Titans get him for his prime years and can then let him walk (Fitz got 8 years).

    If superstar salaries skyrocket in the NFL like some have predicted (since there's a rookie cap, many people think all the extra money will go to vets), this could actually end up looking like a bargain in a few years.

    If we're giving him 30 mil guaranteed, it should have been over a 5 year contract. 13.5 is a little high - should have been somewhere around 11-12. But whatever, lets hope he doesn't pull a hamstring in his first week back.

    YES! THANK YOU GOD lol. So happy it's finally over. I love this deal! It's not crazy like the deal Fitz got. 4 years is a good amount, 13.5 is "elite" money like he wanted but still "fair."

    And 30 guaranteed is extremely fair.

    I love it!

    Just like the Roos and Stewart deals. I think if you combine those deals it's what Joe Thomas got. Give it to Reinfeldt, he can negotiate.
