Out of the seven players the Arizona Cardinals selected in this year’s NFL draft, five are already under contract. Cornerback Marco Wilson, who was selected in the fourth round and hails from Florida, was one of the first three players to sign his contract.

During the draft, Wilson was selected with the 136th overall pick. By giving up their fourth-round pick for him, the Cardinals were able to advance 24 spots in the draft to get him.

For each of the four years that this contract is in effect, his compensation will not exceed the minimum required by the league. It is projected that he will make $660,000 in the year 2021, $825,000 in the year 2022, $940,000 in the year 2023, and $1.055 million in the year 2024.

However, the salary for the years 2022 and beyond is subject to change in accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement for the league.

If he is selected on the 53-man roster, his salary cap charge for this year will be greater than $822,000.

Furthermore, as Balzer points out, Wilson’s contract includes a split for this year as well as for the preseason in 2022. If he gets placed on injured reserve before the start of the 2022 season or during this season, his salary will be reduced to $415,000.
