Here are the details of wide receiver Danny Amendola's one-year contract with the Lions, signed yesterday:
Base salary -- fully guaranteed -- of $4.25 million. He has a roster bonus of $15,625 per game he's on the 46-man game-day roster with a maximum value of $250,000. He can earn up to $1.25 million in incentives based on markers with receptions, yards and playing time. He will have a cap hit in 2019 of $4,484,375.
This all but guarantees Amendola is going to be on Detroit's roster this fall and also shows how much the Lions expect him to play. He has the second-highest cap charge of any Lions receiver, behind Marvin Jones, because Kenny Golladay is still on his rookie contract. Only Matthew Stafford, Theo Riddick, Rick Wagner and Jones have higher cap hits on the Lions offense, although the numbers for new tight end Jesse James, who intends to sign with the Lions this week when the new league year starts, is not yet known.
