NFL  > General NFL  > Anybody remember the USFL, LA Express? They are still paying Steve Young

Even though the franchise is only a dim memory in older folks minds Mr. Young is still getting paid and the payments will continue for years. He will be getting $3 mil a year in the last few years, 2014 he will get around $1 mil.
who was his agent to require the contract be insured? smart guy, hope Steve buys the guy lunch once in a while

He signed a ridiculous back loaded contract that was insured so he continues to collect money from a franchise that belonged to a league that are both long gone.

In total he signed a $36 mil deal to be paid over 43 years.

Let's not forget what all he did to earn that money, wait a minute, just what did he do to earn all that money?
