The Cowboys deal with Covington reveals an inexpensive deal with incentives.
Earlier today the Cowboys came to terms with defensive tackle Christian Convington. The former Houston Texan is being brought into to add depth to the middle of the line as a run-stopper and his 3.5 sacks last year show he’s improving in the pass rush department.
Todd Archer has the contract details:
Signing bonus: $500,000 Base salary: $1 million 46-man roster bonuses: $250,000 Cap number: $1.6875 million 55 percent play-time: $125,000 65 percent play-time: $250,000 75 percent play-time: $500,000 Four sacks: $125,000 Six sacks: $250,000 Base value: $1.75 million Max value: $2.5 million
For a guy with a pretty low profile, Covington had some supporters out there in the free agency rankings. Pro Football Focus had him as the ninth-ranked interior defender in an article posted at the start of February this year. They graded him at 73.4 last year which is in the above average category.
