NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport further elaborated that the deal includes $44 million fully guaranteed, the largest amount guaranteed at signing in NFL History.
The deal is the second largest contract for the cornerback position, just slightly behind the $100 million contract signed by Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey earlier this year, according to Spotrac. Lattimore’s 2021 base salary, plus $34.1 million dollars fully guaranteed, plus the $9.254 million 2021 roster bonus, treated as a signing bonus, adds up to $44.3 million dollars in full guarantees.
Lattimore was drafted by the Saints out of Ohio State with the 11th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He won the 2017 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year and has been to three Pro Bowls in his four-year career. He has 233 total tackles, 10 interceptions, a pick-six and 4 fumble recoveries in that time.
