According to Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Tribune, this is how Peters' contract breaks down:

  • Base salary: $1,075,000
  • Signing bonus: $250,000
  • Roster bonus: $425,000

Altogether, the contract is worth $1.75 million.

In short, this looks like a good deal for the Bears. Additionally, if Peters stays healthy and plays up to par, the team will get a stable, experienced tackle to protect the blind side of Andy Dalton and/or Justin Fields this season.
