Priority Sports has a track record of success when it comes to NFL contract negotiations. Priority prides itself on maintaining a comprehensive understanding of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement and the salary cap landscape. This expertise and understanding has enabled us to utilize creative concepts and maximize our clients’ contracts.
Our Football division has negotiated some of the largest contracts in the history of team sports! Over the past 3 years alone, we have negotiated over a BILLION dollars in contracts on behalf of our clients. The current NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement and the salary cap system is complicated, yet filled with opportunities that we use to benefit our clients. Priority has a proven track-record within the industry and we are committed to bring our clients continued success and security.
A sampling of contracts that we have negotiated for our clients include:
· A top of the market 2017 unrestricted free agent deal for TJ Lang (3 Years, $28.5M), which included the second-most guaranteed money per season that an OG has ever received.
· Playing under his second franchise tag, Kirk Cousins’ 2017 salary places him in the top 3 of all QB contracts.
· A 5 year, $32.5M unrestricted free agent contract for Mohamed Sanu, which included the fifth most money ever guaranteed to a #2 WR ($14M), despite coming off a season in which Mo was not often utilized in his team’s offense (33 receptions).
· At the time of signing (2012), Arian Foster’s contract contained the second most “true” guaranteed money of any RB contract ($20.8M) and the third highest three year cash flow ($30M).
· Mason Crosby’s 2016 extension with the Green Bay Packers made him the second highest paid K in the NFL, and also featured the second greatest signing bonus ever given to a K (4 Years, $16.1M).
· Haloti Ngata’s 2011 contract paid him more money in the calendar year ($37M) than any NFL player other than Peyton Manning.
· Michael Johnson secured $16M for just one season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with one of the few contracts in NFL history that has allowed a player to “double-dip.”
· In 2014 free agency, Alterraun Verner received the fourth most lucrative CB contract, with his 4 year, $25.75M deal.
