Gurley's one-year contract includes a $2 million signing bonus, $3.5 million fully guaranteed base salary and $500,000 in incentives, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, per sources informed. Gurley receives the full $500,000 if he reaches 13 TDs or 1,000 rushing yards. The Los Angeles Rams still owe him another $5.05 million, the portion of a guaranteed roster bonus not covered by offsets, Pelissero added.
NFL's restrictions on player physicals during the COVID-19 pandemic was the likely cause of the delayed announcement by Atlanta. The Falcons announcing they've agreed to terms -- not signed -- with the running back suggests Gurley must still complete a physical.
A three-time Pro Bowler and 2017 Offensive Player of the Year, Gurley was released by the Los Angeles Rams last month. His past two seasons have been marred by a lingering knee issue.
