The details of Vonta Leach’s new contract have finally been fully reported. As reported here first, Leach’s base salaries will be $840K (2013) and $1.75M (2014).  His 2013 Cap number will be $1.47M.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, Leach received a Signing Bonus of $1.16M and has 2013 Incentives of $50K.

Given that the incentives do count against the 2013 Cap, they would be Likely To Be Earn Incentives, meaning that Leach reached those statistical benchmarks in 2012.  If Leach fails to earn those incentives this season, the $50K will be credited back to the Ravens on next year’s Cap.
