I hope that paycheck is the start of a few more. I hope after your career in the pro's is over that you'll be on the Clemson coaching staff. Eventually you'll be the head coach when Dabo retires .

Signing bonus 9.5 million.
Does he get all of that deposited into his account at one time?

I surely hope so, he definitely deserves it for as hard as he worked to get there!!! And I hope so for the work that he put in helping other Tigers to become better players and better humans...

It is deducted, the total contract value is the 15 million over 4 years.

Thank you and + the 1!!! I hope that at the end of his 4th year, that he will still have at least $10 mil of that invested for his future after FB. I hope that all of our Tigers didn't work as hard as they worked just to have a lot of money to blow on theirs and their family wants, and they will invest for their future after the NFL, bc the NFL will pass them by a lot sooner than they think after they get there....

Yes, the signing bonus is part of the total, but it's all paid up front. The remainder is split over the years of the contract and isn't guaranteed.

choose to come back for your senior year, add a 15-0 national championship season culminating in a dominating win over Alabama, then get drafted in the first round and sign a deal with a $9 MM guarantee?

Could not have written it better and no one more deserving than Christian Wilkins.
