Darian Stewart signs 2 year deal with the Broncos

The contract numbers for Broncos’ free-agent safety Darian Stewart are in.

His two-year, $4.25 million deal had previously been reported by The Denver Post, but union documents reveal his contract included a fairly impressive $1.5 million signing bonus. Stewart also has $1.75 million in playing-time bonuses. It adds up to where Stewart is getting paid like a player expected to start, but is not assured. His contract:


2015
*$750,000 salary (full guarantee)
*$1.5 million signing bonus (full guarantee)
2015 total: $2.25 million (full guarantee)
*750,000 in playing-time incentives

2016
*$2 million salary (non-guaranteed)
*$1 million can be added to his salary if he reaches playing time thresholds in 2015.
