No guaranteed money for Tavecchio

Mar. 27, 2013
 

The Packers paid no money up front to give Giorgio Tavecchio a chance to win their kicking job.

Tavecchio's three-year contract with the Packers signed Tuesday includes no signing bonus, roster bonus or other form of guaranteed pay.

If the first-year pro beats out Mason Crosby for the kicking job, he'll make $405,000 this year, with a salary split that will pay him $288,000 if he ends up on injured reserve. In 2014 he'll make $495,000 with a $318,000 split if he goes on IR, and in '15 he'll make $585,000 with no salary split.

None of that money is guaranteed, so he has to make the roster to get it.
