49ers restructured Aldon Smith’s contract; Worked to safeguard the team

aldon smithThe San Francisco 49ers made a very smart move today, by restructuring Aldon Smith’s contract. He will be on a good behavioral contract.  He will still be able to earn his 9.75 million, but it is incentive based now, according to Matt Barrows.  Meaning if he messes up the team can cut him and it is not a huge hit.  This is a safeguarded contract for the 49ers, and it is was a smart move.

League source: 49ers and Aldon Smith have restructured his 2015 salary. He’ll still get $9.75M but it’s no longer fully guaranteed.

New salary will be based on monthly and weekly roster bonuses. Allows team to part ways if there are any off-field issues.
