Tarvaris Jackson's one-year deal with the Bills has a base value of $1.75 million with only $500,000 guaranteed.
It's a far cry from the originally-reported $4.5 million. T-Jack can make $4.5 million if he hits all playing-time incentives, but he could also be cut before the season and Buffalo would only be on the hook for $500K. Jackson's base salary is $1.25 million. It's the contract of a second- or third-string quarterback.
