I think this is a smart move on his part. Basball is guaranteed money football isnt. I think he might have been a late 1st rounder / early 2nd. That would not be that much money. He would have to succeed then get the big cash when he becomes a FA. Not to mention the hits, concussions, injuries you take when playing football. Get hurt and you can get dropped in a heartbeat with no income.
At least he guaranteed himself 10 million less taxes. And if he is that good then he will still make a ton.
