On Oct. 23, one day after Krause was promoted from the practice squad, vice president Andrew brandt and agent buddy baker negotiated the deal.
Most of it was a standard one-year contract, giving Krause the minimum base salary of $510,000. Considering that he missed seven weeks, his cap charge was $300,000.
However, the deal also gave Krause an incentive clause for performance on special teams. Worth $4 million, the clause is payable only if a miracle were to happen and Krause blocked more than six punts.
Hehe.... nice work by the front office.
