Aqib Talib has hilarious reaction to massive MLB contracts being signed

Aqib Talib has spent 11 years in the NFL and will make it a dozen in 2019 with the Los Angeles Rams. He’s earned about $64 million in his career, which is obviously a huge sum of money. If he remains with the Rams through next season and retires in 2020, he’ll have made about $72 million.

When you compare that figure to the contracts some MLB players are signing, it looks significantly smaller. Just this offseason, Bryce Harper signed a 13-year deal worth $330 million, all of which is guaranteed. Mike Trout also signed a 12-year, $430 million contract with the Angels, making him the richest player in MLB history.

On Tuesday, the Braves and Ronald Acuña Jr. agreed to terms on an eight-year deal that will pay him $100 million. He’s played 115 career games in two seasons.

Talib caught wind of all these massive contracts and had a hilarious reaction on Twitter.

It’s hard not to see these contracts baseball players are signing and marvel at their value – especially considering they’re guaranteed. In the NFL, fully guaranteed contracts are almost non-existent with the exception of Kirk Cousins’ deal with the Vikings last year.
