Stefon Diggs' deal with Vikings: Guaranteed money early, salary escalators late


August 3, 2018

The Vikings, in keeping with their pay-as-you-go approach, packed all $40.07 million of Diggs’ guaranteed money into the deal between now and 2021, giving him a $15 million signing bonus and guaranteeing his base salaries of $1.907 million this year, $8.9 million in 2019 and $10.9 million in 2020. The Vikings guaranteed $3.3 million of Diggs’ 2021 base salary, which is worth a total of $11.4 million. It remains to be seen how much of Diggs’ money is fully guaranteed now, and how much will require him to be on the roster at a later date; the Vikings will often guarantee a certain amount of money against a catastrophic injury for the time being, but require the player to be on the roster at the start of a league year to lock in his guaranteed money for that season.
