Its mostly incentives - he can only make that much money if he's on the field and producing. The signing bonus was only 5.4. Its a great deal for the Giants - and for LaVar. If he plays up to his talent both sides will be extremely happy, if he gets hurt or something like that then the Giants are off the hook.
