Cardinals OL Lecitus Smith's salary, contract details and salary cap implications




 

The Arizona Cardinals have signed seven of their eight player selections from the 2022 NFL draft last month. The first three were running back Keaontay Ingram, offensive lineman Lecitus Smith and linebacker Jesse Luketa.

Ingram and Smith were selected in the sixth round and Luketa was one of the Cardinals' three seventh-round picks.

We know the details of their four-year rookie contracts, as the key numbers were shared by SI.com's Howard Balzer.

Lecitus Smith's salary, contract details

Smith's contract is four years and worth a total of more than $3.79 million.

He receives a signing bonus of $132,012 and his salary each year will be the league minimum. In 2022, that will be $705,000 and it increases to $870,000 in 2023, $985,000 in 2024 and $1.1 million in 2025.

Salary cap implications

Smith's signing bonus is charged equally over the four years of the deal and that prorated number is added to the salary to create his cap hit each year.

So Smith's cap hit each year is as follows:

  • 2022: $738,003

  • 2023: $903,003

  • 2024: $1.02 million

  • 2025: $1.13 million
