The question always linger: how much does the first overall pick deserve?
2013 first overall pick OT Eric Fisher signed his contract with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday. Ian Rapoport reported that it is a four-year deal worth $22.19 Million. The money is fully guaranteed. The signing bonus is $14.518 Million.
- 2013: $405,000
- 2014: $395,000
- 2015: $585,000
- 2016: $675,000
- 2014: $919,000
- 2015: $1.94 Million
- 2016: $2.76 Million
After the new collective bargaining agreement, rookie contracts—especially the ones of the first overall pick—have shrunken immensely.
And rightfully so.
Anyhow, the debate will linger on whether Fisher is making too much money. Fisher’s contract is the right size, considering he was chosen over everybody else this draft.
