Picks #17 to #22 will have only a partially guaranteed salary in the 4th year of their deals. Jason Fitzgerald from overthecap.com did a great job breaking this down in the article I linked below on my blog entry on May 11th
, but I'm going to link it again for it's outstanding informational value:
"A Primer on Some Rookie Contract Negotiating Sticking Points" - May 10, 2013
The issue with splits with Nassib will also be an interesting sticking point.
Jason points out in the subsection of the article above titled "Split Salaries" that players drafted in the 4th round, like Nassib "should fight hard to for only having a split salary in 2013 rather than both years. Doesn’t mean it will happen but its worth an extra day or two of fighting with the team." Nassib's agent will argue for a split in one year--2013 only, whereas the Giants will argue for two years--both 2013 and 2014.
