Rudi Johnson’s Contract

After making a name for himself in the Bengals, Rudi Johnson is ready to create a dynasty. Just recently he signed on for a five-year, $26 million contract.

“Of all the recent running back deals, Rudi’s got the best opportunity to earn every penny of his contract. He’s not going to be a cap issue. He’s not going to be a cap casualty. His odds are so much greater of any running back that has come down to see the whole contract. He won’t have to take a cut like Marshall Faulk took this year, or be a cap casualty like Garrison Hearst in San Francisco last year.”
- Peter Schaffer

This contract doesn’t seem to be all too classy to others that have been given such as that of running back Lamont Jordan of the Oakland Raiders. But, Johnson is very likely to get all the money he’s got coming to him and not become a cap casualty. The last year of his contract, he counts for only $4.8 million against the cap.
