It's a Futures Contract. Non of the money is guaranteed unless he makes the roster next season (does get any signing bonus, though that is often minimal). Future contracts are most often for the league minimum ($800,000 per year) - as is his. Jags will likely bring on others to compete with him for the back-up job. Signing now gives him the benefit of being with the team through all off-season programs.

More on Futures contracts:

Actually Nathan gets $221,000 guaranteed. Most futures contracts do not include guaranteed cash, but Nathanís does.


221k? That's practically the same as what he made last year in the CFL when you consider inflation. Florida though is nice in the pocket tax wise.


That was 3 years salary in Canada


I was joking. 71k is a living wage for a mailman. How do you get an apartment on 71k in British Columbia?


Would be like the old NFL where players had off-season jobs and hustled to get paid for advertising gigs.

Maybe this was covered in one of the links I didn't open, so apologies if that's the case. Say he doesn't last with Jacksonville...if he returns to the CFL, is he still in any way "tied" to BC? Or is he effectively a free agent if he returns to the CFL?

The Lions retain Rourkeís CFL rights.
