Like Eric Wright RT @corryjoel @brian_mcintyre Blackmon's suspension should also void $10,772,248 of guarantees in '13-'15 contract years

Holy...

I think it's brilliant. Good on the Jags for holding this guy's feet to the fire with that contract. If other teams have any sense, this is how Ogletree and Mathieu's contracts will be structured as well.

Blackmon seemed like a huge character risk, one of the many turn offs of him as a top 5 prospect.

Blackmon also had an incident after being drafted, and now this. He cant be trusted and i didnt trust him as a prospect worth of a top 5 pick.

Taking someone who's passing prowess is on par with Tim Tebow.

Bold strategy.

Mathieu's contract has no guarantees, period. not even any that have to revoked for failure to perform, it's all incentive based.

Has Mathieu already signed a contract?

If so, that doesn't make sense to me. Arizona knew they were taking a risk with him in the 3rd round. He should get the same guaranteed amount as anyone else taken in that slot.
