Penn Contract: Very Little Up Front, Big Incentives

It appears the initial rumors are starting to pan out -- Penn will sign a contract which is multi-year (what he wanted) and has low up front number with lots of incentives (what the Buccaneers wanted).  Looks like a good deal for all.  Quiet talk is that Dominik and Penn agreed for Penn to have the most success this season Penn needed to get to camp on time -- and this formed the basis for the negotiations today which appear to have paid off in the form of a new contract and no more lost time for Penn.

Here is a look at the offensive line salaries last year:
