Happy Bobby Bonilla Day!
Every year we gather on July 1st to celebrate the man, the myth, the legend, Bobby Bonilla. Why? His contract deferment.

In the year 2000, the Mets didn’t want Bobby Bonilla, and they still owed him 5.9 million dollars. So, Bonilla and the club negotiated to defer his payments until the year 2035. Though Bonilla retired in 2001 he received his first payment in 2011 and will continue to get paid 1.19 million dollars until the year 2035.

Now we have Bobby Bonilla Day. Deferred pay is the greatest thing ever. So I took the liberty of finding out who else has deferred pay to look forward to the answers will surprise you.
