The details are in on Eric Decker’s contract.

The wide receiver who signed with the Patriots last week is a great value for the team, but also no lock to make the final roster.

The maximum value of the deal is $2.1 million, with the cap number at $1.5 million, but only the $75,000 signing bonus is guaranteed.

The cost would not be prohibitive if things don’t work out and the Patriots elect to part ways with Decker before the regular season.

Here is how the deal breaks down:

Base salary: $950,000 ($500,000 preseason split)

Roster bonus: $150,000 for making the 53-man roster

Roster bonus: $325,000 ($20,312.50 per game active)

Incentives: Maximum of $600,000 (based on number of receptions)
