The full contract details for Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky have finally been released, according to a report by Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated.
The Steelers signed Trubisky to a two-year contract that was reported initially as being worth over $14 million three weeks ago on the opening of free agency, plus incentives.
According to Breer, the contract is for $14.285 million over two years, including a $5.25 million signing bonus. Trubisky can also earn $4 million per season in playing time bonuses and a $250,000 Pro Bowl bonuses.
The incentives, by the way, aren't crazy …
• $4 million each year in play-time incentives (these will be pretty achievable if he starts and stays healthy all the way through).
• $250,000 Pro Bowl incentive each year.
Pretty fair all the way around. https://t.co/b979oLQCTG

The playing time bonuses begin to trigger at 60% of the team’s snaps, which should categorize those bonuses as not likely to be earned for salary cap purposes, even if Trubisky is the team’s presumptive starter.
That will mean that his cap hit for the 2022 season can be finalized. He will have a $1.035 million salary and have $2.625 million in prorated singing bonus this season for a $3.66 million cap hit. In 2023, his base salary will climb to $8 million and his cap hit will be $10.625 million.
