New York Jets’ Zach Wilson signs rookie deal after missing first 2 days of practice

It took longer than expected, but the New York Jets and quarterback Zach Wilson agreed to terms on his rookie contract Thursday.

The first-round pick and presumptive starter, who missed two days of practice as the two sides haggled over technicalities in the contract language, signed a four-year, $35.15 million contract — a slotted deal that is fully guaranteed.

It contains a $22.9 million signing bonus and a fifth-year team option, standard for all first-round picks.

Wilson, who took a red-eye from Los Angeles and arrived in New Jersey on Thursday morning, was the last unsigned first-round selection from the 2021 NFL draft.

The contract includes offset language and the signing bonus will be paid within 15 days, per a source, details that imply that the sides have compromised because those were the sticking points. Originally, the Jets wanted to defer payments into 2022.

Coach Robert Saleh, speaking to reporters shortly before news of the deal broke, said he talked to Wilson early in the week.

The conversation was strictly about football, not contract-related, Saleh said. He said he wasn’t worried about the stalemate being a disruption to the team.

“It’s more concern for the kid,” Saleh said. “Every rep is important, so my concern is that it’s two days too many for him. But as far as the installs go and the way we’re preparing the rest of the team, that doesn’t concern me.

“But this young man has a chance to do something special around here that hasn’t been done in a while and every rep matters for him.”

Wilson benefited from a heavy workload in the spring. With no veterans on the roster, he took all the first-team reps.

There was an increased sense of urgency to strike a deal because the Jets are counting on him to be their opening-day starter, although they haven’t revealed that. The only other quarterbacks on the roster are James Morgan and Mike White, neither of whom has regular-season experience. Rookie contract disputes are unusual because the deals are slotted, but teams and agents sometimes haggle over certain clauses.

The Jets include an offset in every contract that has guaranteed money, which provides financial protection if they release the player before the contract is complete. An offset lets a team to cut a player before the end of his four-year contract is completed and have the remaining money reduced by the amount of his next contract.

This isn’t an unusual stance. It’s believed that 30 of the 32 teams use offsets in contracts. The exceptions are the Los Angeles Rams and the Jacksonville Jaguars, with the latter having signed No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence to a deal with no offsets.

Without an offset, a cut player collects the guarantee from his old team plus the money he receives from his new team — aka double dipping.

What complicated the Jets’ negotiation was that at least two of the five quarterbacks drafted in the first round received deals without full offsets — Lawrence and Justin Fields (No. 11 by the Chicago Bears). Fields received a partial offset.

Interestingly, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, the top pick in 2020 and represented by the same agency that negotiated Wilson’s contract, signed a contract that includes offset language.

Professional players, syndicate players, or players considered by WAGERWEB to be abusing the bonus system by any means may have their bonuses, and the money won from these bonuses, revoked at the discretion of WAGERWEB management. Call our office for a detailed explanation of what is considered bonus abuse.

– Any violations of the rules in any offer(s) of WAGERWEB can result in the immediate forfeiture of all bonus funds, and the winnings from the use of these funds as well as the loss of account holder privileges.

– If it is determined that a new customer already has an account with WAGERWEB, thus abusing our bonus system, WAGERWEB may require the forfeiture of all bonuses and the money won from said bonuses.

– WAGERWEB reserves the right to terminate or modify any bonus program at any time. Participants agree that prior notice of a modification or termination is not required and no bonus will be paid past the termination or modification date.

– WAGERWEB reserves the right to charge an Account Closure Fee to any account deemed by WAGERWEB to be a professional, syndicate, non-recreational, or bonus abuser. The Account Closure Fee may vary depending on the case.

– All clients who receive a bonus must complete their rollover requirement prior to a withdrawal request. The rollover is the amount of times a client must play the total amount of the deposit plus reimbursed fees and bonus. The rollover can only be completed with sportsbook volume. WagerWeb does not cover fees if the deposit and fee amount is not left in the account for 7 days (this is the 7 Day fee Rule).

For example, if you have a five time rollover (5X) and you had sent us $1000.00 with a reimbursed fee of $68.00 and a cash bonus of $100.00, you must complete $5840.00 ($1000 + $68 + $100 X 5 = $5840) in total sports book volume before you can request a withdrawal of your funds.

Sportsbook Volume is defined at WAGERWEB as the lesser of the risk or win amount of each wager. Casino, poker, and free play volume do not count towards this rollover. If the client chooses to withdraw funds from the account before these requirements are fulfilled, all bonuses, fees and winnings from these monies can be forfeited and deducted from the account balance. Winnings will be determined at the sole discretion of WAGERWEB. Acceptance of any bonus from WAGERWEB is considered an agreement to this policy.

Betting both sides of the same game to accelerate the rollover process is considered a violation of our bonus rules. Any wagers placed on both sides will be excluded from the rollover calculations.

– Once all rollover requirements have been met, payouts can be arranged through a number of different methods. All withdrawals must be sent in the account holder’s name.

– Free Play wagers can be placed over the phone and on the Internet for straight wagers and two or three team parlays or teasers. Free play bonuses may be used on any type of wager, including parlays or teasers with a maximum of three teams. If the play wins, then only the winnings go into the players account as CASH. If the FREE PLAY loses there is no physical adjustment to the account. If the play ends in a push then the player gets to play the free play again.

Example 1: A client has a $100.00 free play and wishes to use it on the Dallas Cowboys -3 (-110). The wager will be $0.00 to win $91.00. The client lays the virtual $100.00 to win $91.00.
