The contract will be over after the season (this year serves as the one year) and then LA can resign him beyond that. I assume a 2-3 year deal at whatever he signed for now (likely in the range of $925,000 per year).

According to this, the deal is with LA, not an amateur try-out.

That's how I understand it anyways.
Cap Geek is showing that the contract is next years, so they must have signed the PTO and started the contract next year. I assumed it started this year as well.
