If you are a Chargers fan, you are probably wondering what you can expect from the latest Justin Herbert signing. The sixth overall pick in the NFL draft signed a four year, $26.6 million rookie contract. There is also an option for a fifth season. His contract also includes a $16.9 million signing bonus. Herbert is the fourth quarterback to sign with the team since he was drafted, so you can expect a lot of exciting moments ahead.
The Los Angeles Chargers signed wide receiver Mike Williams to an agreement worth $60 million. He will receive $40 million in guaranteed money and $28 million in Year 1. The former Oregon Ducks quarterback was also named the team’s second most valuable receiver. Williams has recieved 76 passes for 1,146 yards, and 14 touchdowns. Herbert is credited with his new contract. Herbert’s first two years in the NFL were marred by injuries, but he has turned a corner under pressure, and has been rewarded accordingly.
Solomon Thomas, a defensive player, and Haason Reick, a pass rush linebacker, are two other notable signings this week. Reddick’s new deal will pay him $5.5million over four years and include incentives that could increase the value to $8 million. Marlon Mack will also be returning to the Colts, after signing a $2 million contract for one year.
