FO looks at top contracts for CBs

The Asomugha contract aside, the 2008 Asante Samuel contract executed by the Eagles represents the multi-year market-setter for elite starting cornerbacks. Not only does Samuel’s contract lead the multi-year market in average per year at $9.5 million, but it also leads the market with a guarantee of $23.6 million and a three-year total of $32.1 million.

Speaking of three-year totals, to put the DeMarcus Ware contract in perspective, his three-year total is $45 million, compared to Asomugha’s $45.5 million. The other blockbuster defensive contract this year, that of the Redskins’ Albert Haynesworth, has a three-year total of $41 million. The quarterback contracts of Eli Manning and Philip Rivers both have three-year totals in the neighborhood of $50 million
