Earlier this week, the New York Giants signed quarterback Davis Webb and punter Jamie Gillan to reserve/future contracts, deals that included unusual bonus payments on top.
It’s not the type of signing bonus that guarantees them a roster spot, but it’s more than the typical futures contract. For instance, the next highest signing bonus for a Giants futures contract this offseason is $10K for RB Antonio Williams. LB Trent Harris got $0.

Webb, who was a third-round selection of the Giants out of Cal in 2017, was inked to a one-year deal worth $1.035 million ($895K cap hit), while Gillan was signed to a one-year deal worth $895K.
After washing out with the Giants in his rookie season, Webb spent 2018 with the New York Jets before becoming the Buffalo Bills’ backup the past three seasons, hence the reason why the Giants brash this back.
Gillan was the Cleveland Browns punter from 2019-21 and spent last season on the Bills’ practice squad.
