Because he sucked last year and somehow just got more. I assumed the details of this will show he is gambling on himself again

No tricks to Russell Okung's 4-year, $53M deal with #Chargers. He got $10M signing bonus, fully gtd base salaries of $3M in '17, $12M in '18


Pretty much what I said, 2 year deal - easy as pie to get out form under in Y3. Paid a higher APY across those two years to get the early-out with minimal dead money. Likely offset some by King Dunlap who'll get released between now and the 18th (when his roster bonus guarantees) which takes a shade under $5.5M off the ledger (of a due $8.6M 2017 cap-hit).


That's still a ridiculous amount of money to pay to a player who struggled last year as a starter and is injury prone, no matter how early you can get out of the contract (Unless it's a 1 year deal then who cares) I don't like it but the chargers are gonna do stupid things like this.

Long live Phillip Rivers and his constant carrying of this god awful team.

Also go (South Carolina) Charleston Dingoes. Looking for a co-owner for a fantasy team so PM me please.
