Additional terms are in on new Chiefs cornerback David Amerson's contract.
Amerson, 26, who agreed to a one-year deal with a $2.25 million base salary last week, will receive a signing bonus of $500,000, which is the only guaranteed money in the deal.
But if he becomes a starter, which has become a greater possibility since the Chiefs recently agreed to trade star cornerback Marcus Peters, Amerson stands to make a decent amount more, as his contract contains $3.75 million in incentives.
The deal also includes a per-game roster bonus of $39,062, up to a maximum of $625,000, and a workout bonus of $125,000.
Never miss a local story.
Amerson, 26, is a five-year pro who spent the last three seasons with the Oakland Raiders. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder only played in six games last season, recording 18 tackles and a pass deflection before landing on injured reserve because of a foot injury, but he was better the previous two seasons, when he averaged 61 tackles, 21 pass deflections and three interceptions.
The Raiders released Amerson earlier this month before his $5.5 million salary for 2018 would be fully guaranteed. Amerson had also drawn interest from the San Francisco 49ers, according to The Sacramento Bee.
