Carolina Panthers first-round pick Kelvin Benjamin's four-year deal is worth $7.66 million, with $6.19 million guaranteed, according to the contract details obtained by the Observer on Monday.
Benjamin, the former Florida State wide receiver and the 28th overall pick in last month's draft, received a signing bonus worth $3.89 million.
Only the first three years of Benjamin's contract are guaranteed. He has a $1 million salary and a $465,125 roster bonus in 2017 during the final year of the deal.
The Panthers' three other first-round picks under the current collective bargaining agreement all received fully guaranteed rookie deals, but all were among the first 14 picks.
