NFL to consider restoring’football move’ requirement for catch More The NFL is going back in time to try to define and clarify a legal catch. The league’s competition committee next week will recommend restoring the football move requirement for a reception, the same term it removed from the rule in 2015 in an attempt to make a catch less subjective and easier to officiate. Al Riveron, the NFL’s senior vice president of officiating, announced the recommendation Wednesday in a tweet. The competition committee will present to all 32 owners at the league meetings, which begin Sunday evening in Orlando, Fla. In March 2015, the league replaced the football move criteria for a catch by attempting to clarify what constituted such a move.
He explains: Under my previous contract with Seattle, I had no guaranteed money for 2018. In my new deal with the 49ers, I get a guaranteed $3 million signing bonus right off the bat and another $2 million if I pass a physical before November 11, which is the last day a team can bring a player off the PUP list. And in a sport where contracts aren’t fully guaranteed, money in hand is better than anything. So $5 million for just signing the contract and passing a physical is a big win for me.
Outside of this past season, I’ve never missed a game in my NFL career. So on top of my signing bonus and my $2 million base salary for 2018, we put incentives in the contract that will pay me more depending on how much I play — on both a per-game basis and a percentage of defensive snaps — as well whether or not I make the Pro Bowl or the All-Pro team. All in all, including my signing bonus, I could earn as much as $13 million for 2018.
