Redskins Give Jammal Brown $8.25 Million Guaranteed, $27.5 Million Over Five Years, According To Report

UPDATE: Rich Campbell reports that Brown got $8.25 million guaranteed at the end of the day.

The Washington Redskins have re-signed 30-year old right tackle Jammal Brown to a five-year contract that is very unique in nature. Brown's deal is for a total of $27.5 million over five years, according to Rich Campbell of the Washington Times. However, only $8 million of that is guaranteed, according to John Keim of the Washington Examiner.

That's a fairly large discrepancy, and it's indicative of the creative way the Redskins can structure these contracts. In contrast to Brown, new defensive lineman Stephen Bowen received the exact same contract, except $12.5 million of his deal was guaranteed.

Brown likely gets less because of his injury history and his age. However, he said he really enjoys playing for Mike Shanahan and valued that relationship in ultimately deciding to return.
