There isn't, but what Perkins signed was the standard UDFA contract


It's basically a little bit over the league minimum and a 3 year contract (1st rounders get 5 years, 2nd rounders get 4 years, UDFAs get 3 years). Aside from the few guys that got signing bonuses of $500 to nearly $200k, these contracts are not guaranteed, and I do believe you have to make the roster to get the full payout.

Some teams signed 20+ UDFAs so far (the Rams are right at 20), so I can't imagine they keep all of them on the 53 man roster or 10 man practice squad because of the roster limits and salary cap. That means a lot of those dudes will get cut and get none of it.

The minimum salary for the practice squad is around $125k. So I imagine a lot of these guys that got the really nice looking (on paper) contracts, many of them will be cut and not see any of it (or a reduced version)... Hopefully our guys beat those odds!
