Dawson Knox Contract: Salary, Cap Hit, Potential Extension
Drafted in the third round at No. 96 in the 2019 NFL Draft, Dawson Knox has been one of the most reliable offensive weapons for the Buffalo Bills since he entered the league. He is already Josh Allen’s second favorite receiver on the squad and has steadily improved his numbers each year. Knox will be a crucial figure for years on a Buffalo team with championship aspirations.
Dawson Knox Salary
The Bills tight end inked a four-year contract extension worth $52,000,000 on September 7, 2022. This included a $7,000,000 signing bonus, with $31,200,000 guaranteed and an average annual salary of $13,000,000.
In 2023, Knox will have a base salary of $1,955,000, a roster bonus of $320,000, and a signing bonus of $10,000,000. He also has a workout bonus of $250,000.
Dawson Knox Cap Hit
The 26-year-old will carry a cap hit of $6,425,000 in 2023. His contract has a dead cap value of $17,555,000 this year.
Dawson Knox Potential Extension
Knox has seen his usage increase tremendously over the past two seasons, with his receptions doubling from the years prior. He responded by becoming Mr. Reliable for the Bills and has been a huge playoff performer. Knox has scored five touchdowns in just eight postseason games – good for the third most TDs in Bills playoff history.
The tight end is entering his prime at 26 years old and is signed until he is 31. However, he can certainly demand more money for his last few years if he helps bring postseason success to the team.
Knox is currently the seventh highest-paid tight end in the league. There is a potential out in his contract in 2025.
