Harrison Smith Receives $3.6 Million Signing Bonus, $5.8 Million Guaranteed

It took a while for the Minnesota Vikings to start signing their 2012 NFL Draft class, but they inked a majority of their picks to four-year deals at the end of May. Details of the four-year contract their second first round pick SS Harrison Smith received have emerged, courtesy of 1500ESPN:

The four-year contract rookie safety Harrison Smith signed with the Minnesota Vikings last week included a $3,631,672 signing bonus and $5,775,109 in guarantees, an NFL source said on Tuesday.

The 29th overall pick in April's draft out of Notre Dame, Smith received fully guaranteed base salaries of $390,000 in 2012, $714,479 in 2013 and $1,038,958 in 2014.

The only non-guaranteed portion of the deal is a $1,363,437 base salary in 2015, for a total value of $7,138,546.

The Vikings still have yet to sign their first overall pick, LT Matt Kalil.
