San Diego Chargers: Donald Butler's Contract Terms Released

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

The San Diego Chargers and Donald Butler have agree to a seven-year contract extension that is actually two contract extensions acting as one.

Since it's been announced that the Chargers had re-signed Donald Butler, fans have been holding their breath to see the contract terms. The wait is over, as NFL Networks Ian Rapoport released the terms this morning.

How do you feel Tom Telesco did here, did he over pay for Butler?

Keep in mind that Butler has played in 37% of the team's games in 4 years. If Butler hits his potential that he's flashed, then he should have a big pay day. At worst, if Butler will make $28 million. For the first 3 years, he's worth about $6.5 million annually.

On the surface, it seems like the Chargers over paid. Perhaps in 3 years we will look back on this deal as if the team got a bargain for Butler. Time will tell.
