The Broncos selected the Alabama star with the 15th overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft. While offset language has become a sticking point for first-year players, Jeudy's draft position largely set the parameters for his contract.
According to Over the Cap, Jeudy is projected to earn a little under $15.2 million over his first four years with an $8.6 million signing bonus. Here's how his yearly salary cap hits break down:
- 2020: $2,762,356
- 2021: $3,452,945
- 2022: $4,143,534
- 2023: $4,834,123
Drew Lock replaced Joe Flacco midway through the 2019 season, and Flacco's departure cleared the way for Lock to open 2020 as the starting quarterback.
