maybe someone else can confirm.
as far as i know, every where i read and heard, they say he gets his signing bonus because thats kind of the definition of a signing bonus. Getting the money to sign the contract.

as for the rest of the contract, the poster would be right. The contracts exists, just unenforceable at the moment.
