Report: Financial details of former Georgia OL Andrew Thomas's contract with Giants revealed
Former Georgia OL Andrew Thomas was considered by many to be one of the top offensive linemen in the 2020 NFL Draft class. The New York Giants certainly felt that way, as they made him the first lineman off the board, taking him with the No. 4 overall pick.
Now, the talented young rookie will be expected to contribute right away. According to his reported contract details, though, he’ll be well-compensated for his efforts.
Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Giants will pay Thomas a fully-guaranteed $32.345 million over the 4-year rookie deal, including a $21.1 million signing bonus:
