The Chicago Bears have agreed to sign quarterback Trevor Siemian to a two-year deal worth up to $4 million per season. The deal may have room for an additional $5 million, which would make the total contract value for this rookie quarterback around $10 million. Siemian has just finished two disappointing seasons with New Orleans Saints. He did not play one game during those seasons. Siemian did play six games in 2021 and started four of them. However, he was eventually cut by the team in November.
Siemian, an American football quarterback, was first entered the NFL in 2015 as a seventh-round selection. Before the 2018 season began, he was traded to the Vikings. However, he did not play a single snap. After leaving the Vikings, he signed with the New York Jets, where he immediately gained experience and eventually earned the starting job. After Sam Darnold’s mono, he was the Jets’ Week-2 starter. Then, he suffered a torn ankle ligament and spent time on the practice squad.
In addition to playing for the Saints, Siemian is a likely backup quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles and the New Orleans Saints. His salary could be comparable to veteran backup quarterbacks. Siemian was the backup quarterback for Ryan and Brady last season, and won four games. Siemian is expected to remain in Chicago after 2021 and earn a decent salary. Siemian is the only NFL quarterback with so much upside.
A realistic estimate of Trevor Sieemian’s salary in 2021 is not possible to predict, as he has a history of injury and lack of consistency. His contract will likely be for one year. It’s worth looking at his salary projections. The quarterback’s salary is likely to increase each year, but the numbers do not necessarily indicate his future performance. If he plays well and keeps making good money, he could reach the $990,000 salary mark before he is even 30 years in the NFL.
Siemian’s Chicago salary is expected to rise. He will be Justin Fields’ backup. In Chicago, the Bears are reportedly interested in trading Nick Foles, so Siemian will be their backup for now. He’s expected to play less this season in Chicago than he did last year. Although it is possible that he will be back in action next year, the Chicago Bears have not yet made an official announcement about his salary.
In addition to the newfound wealth for the Saints, it’s also important to consider the salary of veteran receiver Smith. Although Smith is entering his contract year, he’s still a top two fantasy pass catcher among tight ends. He’ll be a free agent after 2021, so it’s crucial that he has a good season to justify a big contract. He could earn an additional $1.3 million if he signs a three-year contract.
