Tommy DeVito contract details: How much money is Giants QB making in 2023 salary?

With Giants starting quarterback Daniel Jones out for the season and backup Tyrod Taylor going down with an injury shortly after, former Syracuse signal-caller Tommy DeVito has been left to take the reins in New York.

He’s drawn a lot of attention for doing so, both because of the strong moments he’s had on the field and some of the interesting details regarding his life beyond it — including the fact that he still lives with his parents.

That’s been regarded as a smart financial move by many, with those tabbing it as good thinking for late-round draft picks or free agents whose NFL future is anything but guaranteed.

Here’s a look into everything to know about Tommy DeVito’s contract, including his current salary.

Tommy DeVito contract details, salary

New York signed DeVito as an undrafted free agent in April following the 2024 NFL Draft. Upon joining the Giants, he received a $10,000 signing bonus and a $10,000 base salary guarantee.

The former Fighting Illini signal-caller is in the first year of a three-year contract worth up to $2.705 million. But the remainder of his deal is not guaranteed, meaning he would lose any unpaid dollars if he were to be cut.

DeVito carries a cap hit of $416,667 this season. That number moves to $915,000 in 2024, his base salary for the year.

DeVito will earn a prorated salary of roughly $44,000 per week for every game he is on the team’s active roster for the rest of the season. 

The NFL states that the minimum salary for a rookie is $750,000 for a full 17-game season. The Giants had nine games remaining on the schedule when DeVito was promoted to the active roster, meaning he could earn far more the initially anticipated in his rookie season.

Tommy DeVito stats and future outlook

DeVito and the Giants will remain at home to face the Packers this week on “Monday Night Football” as the young quarterback looks to continue proving himself.

So far this season, he’s completed 62.9 percent of his passing attempts for 697 yards with 7 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.

Depending upon how things shake out, DeVito has the opportunity to finish the season as the Giants’ starter with games remaining against the Packers, Saints, Eagles and Rams, followed by a second meeting with the Eagles in the regular-season finale.

DeVito has already made one notable leap, outright jumping Taylor on the depth chart. Giants coach Brian Daboll indicated Taylor will be the No. 2 quarterback when placed back on the active roster.
