The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed quarterback Landry Jones on Thursday to a two-year, $4.4 million contract and he’ll reportedly earn a total of $2.5 million in 2017 as part of that deal.
Jones reportedly received a signing bonus of $600,000 on Thursday and that’s the only guaranteed money that’s involved. He’s also set to earn base salaries of $1.9 million in 2017 and 2018 and his cap charges for both years will be $2.2 million.
The signing of Jones only used up $1.66 million of the Steelers available salary cap space after roster displacement in the top 51.
The Steelers can obviously easily cut Jones at any time moving forward with very little salary cap repercussions as his $600,000 signing bonus is the only potential dead money.
Jones earned nearly $2.6 million over his first four seasons in the league.
