No Guaranteed Money for Keydrick Vincent

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed the veteran offensive lineman to a team-friendly contract.

The immediate league-wide reaction to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signing veteran guard Keydrick Vincent to a two-year, $4.5 million dollar contract on Friday was that that was not back-up money. However, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that Vincent's contract contains no guaranteed money.

Per Wilson, Vincent did not receive a signing or roster bonus, and has base salaries of $1 million dollars in 2010 and 2011. Playing-time incentives increase the value of his contract.

Vincent, who started 30 games over his previous two seasons with the Carolina Panthers, is expected to push third-year guard Jeremy Zuttah for the Buccaneers' starting left guard job this summer.
