According to ESPN, James Laurinaitis – son of the legendary "Road Warrior" Animal – recently signed a massive deal with the NFL's St. Louis Rams, for a guaranteed $23.5 million. The contract extends five years, and offers Laurinaitis over $41 million if he completes his term.
This contract is almost eight times bigger than his previous deal of $5.1 million over four years, and comes off the heels of his record 142-tackle season in 2011, guaranteeing Laurinaitis a spot as a starting linebacker and one of the Rams' team captains.
