You aren't wrong, but the player has the option to negotiate for more gauranteed, and less total.Not at all. Nearly all NFL contracts are guaranteed money and then fluff. Players and agents generally only care about the guaranteed money, and when it's over, teams cut them or players ask for a renegotiation. Think of the non-guaranteed years as a "team option" like in the NBA. It gives teams the ability to retain the player but play with the contract. Maybe you extend them but front or back load it.
If they choose the high number, and early gauranteed, that's what they get.
Hell, he hasn't even collected the whole gaurantee yet.
