The new terms of Emmanuel Moseley’s contract show his team-friendly stats.



Before free agency, the Detroit Lions and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley came to a new contract agreement. The terms of the one-year pact are now accessible on

The Lions were quick to sign Moseley in 2023, even though he was still recovering from an ACL injury. Moseley’s one-year contract was for $5.3 million, and he had the chance to earn an additional $700,000 in playing time bonuses. Sadly, Moseley experienced a setback in his ACL recuperation, delaying his return to the field. His season ended when he tore his other ACL, limiting him to only two snaps of action when he did eventually see the field.

The parties decided to give it another shot in 2024, and as anticipated, it was far less expensive to have Moseley on staff. Additionally, the deal included roster incentives for each game.

Emmanuel Mosley

Terms of the contract: one year, guaranteed $1,000,000 up to $2,875,000

Base Pay: $1.125 Million
$1 million as a signing bonus
$44,118 per game (up to $750,000) is the roster bonus.
Cap Hit for 2024: $2,169,118
Savings of $1,169,118 if released

In addition to having his base pay and signing bonus cut in half from his prior deal, Moseley also had his per-game roster bonus decreased by a quarter of a million dollars starting in 2023. Moseley can receive a bonus of up to $750K if he plays in all 17 games in 2024, but since he only appeared in one game the previous season, the Lions will only have to pay $44,118 in likely-to-be-earned (LTBE) cap space in 2024. The Lions will assume the remainder of the bonus cap hit in 2025 if Moseley does receive any other game bonuses.

Moseley’s 2023 contract also had a voided year option that extended to 2024. It is important to remember that the $1 million is a totally different contract from this new one and is regarded as a dead money cap hit.

With the potential for Moseley to earn more money with playing time, this is a very team-friendly arrangement for a player gifted enough to be considered for a starting job prior to injury.
