Johnny Manziel’s 4-year contract is worth approximately $8.3M with a roughly $4.3M signing bonus. Whopping 94% guaranteed (65% in year 4)— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 17, 2014
Johnny Manziel has a $250K roster bonus in Year 4 due in March, so he receives that before the season starts. Another nice win.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 17, 2014
