San Francisco 49ers Offseason: Randy Moss Contract Details

Wide reciever Randy Moss was signed to a one year deal by the San Francisco 49ers, at minimal risk for both sides. The 49ers have only committed a minimal amount of money to him, so if he doesn't work out they can cut him loose real quick. Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

In addition to a base salary of $1.75 million, Moss will earn $46,875 for every game he is active on the 49ers' 46-man roster -- a possible $750,000, if he plays in all 16 games. Moss can make another $1.5 million in incentives based on playing time, receptions and being named to the Pro Bowl team.

I'm guessing he'll want all that money as straight cash, homie.

With Josh Morgan apparently on his way to the Washington Redskins, Moss's ability to produce with San Francisco becomes that much more crucial. The 49ers need wide receiver production if they expect to have a consistent enough offense to win a Super Bowl next season, particularly in the passing game. Utilizing Moss as a deep wideout threat to stretch the field vertically and allow for more action for the remainder of the offense will be crucial.
