Beckham has an incentive-laden contract with the Rams that pays him a $500,000 signing bonus to go along with a $750,000 salary.

Beckham can also earn up to an additional $3 million, giving the contract a $4.25 million ceiling, according to media reports.

But as some Twitter users pointed out, he will just have to make sure he's square with the tax services first.
