From MMQB 3M less? No way. Colvin's deal at the time was about 90% of the max he could have received. The Lions at the time were offering a 5-year deal worth $ 23.5 million with a large signing bonus. He signed for Six years, $25 million, $6 million. 4.7 vs 4.1 isn't 3M/year and they gave him an extra year of security to make up for it. I usually like King but that is ESPNish reporting.
