Vick's salary breakdown
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will be paid $1.625 million for the 2009 season regardless of the length of any pending suspension by the NFL, unless he is released by the team prior to the opening game, NFL Players Association sources familiar with the contract told ESPN. Vick's contract does not contain any language that prorates his base salary based on his availability for a 16-game season, the sources said. Thus, if NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspends Vick for a designated period of the regular season, Vick will not be docked a paycheck by the Eagles for missing those games. Vick also will receive $5.25 million for the 2010 season if he remains with the Eagles, including a $1.5 million roster bonus due by March 5. Once paid, it is counted as money earned. In addition to the bonus, Vick's base salary in 2010 is $3.75 million, of which $1 million is guaranteed. Vick does not have incentives in his contract for 2009, but does have a $2.75 million worth of incentives for 2010, in addition to the roster bonus and base salary. Technically, Vick's contract is not guaranteed, but under the collective bargaining agreement, his salary is guaranteed for this season if he is on the opening day roster because he is a vested veteran

year one - 1.625 if he makes the opening day roster

year two - 1.5 million bonus for making the team with a salary of 3.75 million (5.25 million) which does not include the 2.75 million in incentives

if the option is picked up for year two 1 million of the contract is guaranteed.

so, you're full of shit.
