A few notes/comments following yesterday's trade.
As per 3 Down Nation, in an article written on May 19,2018, Johnny Manziel received a $10,000 signing bonus,has a 2018 base salary of $122,000 + housing allowance of $18,000 + $10,000 incentives if active for 6 games,10 games and 14 games + finally, $120,000 if he takes half the snaps.
Based on this information and since 5 games have been played, he will earn.with the Alouettes, a minimum of $100,111 in 2018 and a maximum of up to $240,111 in 2018.
For 2019, Johnny will receive a $75,000 bonus on March 1st,2019 and his base salary will be 202,000,meaning that his minimum salary will be $277,000 in 2019. He will also have the same $10,000 and $120,000 incentives, meaning that his 2019maximum salary could be $427,000 in 2019.
Yes, he was our best receiver, but, excluding 2 long passes, he did not do that great.
Game 1, against BC: 6 catches for 98 yards. Longest 56.
Game 2,against Winnipeg: 5 catches for 22 yards.
Game 3,against Saskatchewan: 3 catches for 130 yards. Longest,against Duron, 79 yards and 1 TD.
Game 4,against Ottawa: 1 catch for 33 yards,early in the game. Injured and did not return.
Game 5,against Calgary. Did not play.Injured in game 4.
I worry more about the loss of DE Jamall Westerman than the lost of Chris Williams.
For the first 2 homes games attendances were:
First home game,against Winnipeg: 19,498
Second home game,against Ottawa: 16,718.
Unless the weather is bad, I expect the attendance for this Thursday to be in line with first game.
If the Alouettes play well and eventually win games, the attendances will be in the 20,000.
