The Kansas City Chiefs added a handful of faces in the first week of NFL free agency, including wide receiver Marquise Brown. After spending the last two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, the veteran speedster inked a one-year contract with the Chiefs that was reported to be worth up to $11 million in incentives.

Fast forward to Tuesday and we finally have the full breakdown regarding Brown's upcoming incentives.

Chiefs News: Marquise Brown Contract Incentives Breakdown

NBC Sports' Albert Breer shared the full contract details on Tuesday and it's loaded with incentives. For starters, Brown earned $3 million from simply signing the deal and will receive a guaranteed $3.5 million as the pace. He can also earn $250,000 for participating in offseason workouts and another $250,000 for per-game roster bonuses.

When it comes to his on-field performance, Brown can earn up to another $4 million. He'll see $500,000 if he plays 45% of offensive snaps, $625,000 for 52.5%, $750,000 for 60%, and $1.5 million if he sees a snap share of at least 75%. For reference, he's played at least 78% in each of the last four seasons.

Additionally, the former 2019 first-rounder can make $500,000 by finishing with five touchdowns in 2024 — something he hasn't done since he had six in 2021. That number jumps up to $750,000 if he amasses six scores and $1 million if he can find the end zone seven times, just one away from the career high he set back in 2020).

Lastly, Brown's latest contract also features up to $1.5 million in yardage bonuses. The speedy wideout will be paid $500,000 if he reaches 500 receiving yards, $625,000 for 625, and $750,000 for 750. If tallies his first 1,000-yard campaign since 2021, he'll earn $1.5 million.

The details of Brown's contract emerged one day after he revealed that he turned down more money from other teams to join the Chiefs. $11 million is nothing to sneeze at, though, and it wouldn't be surprising if he earns an even bigger contract next season if he can cash in on the majority of these incentives with Patrick Mahomes throwing him the ball.

And, of course, a 1,000-yard, 7-TD campaign from Brown would go a long way to help Kansas City pull off a three-peat. As it stands, the Chiefs own the second-best odds on FanDuel Sportsbook to hoist the Lombardi Trophy next February.
