According to a report from Engadget [VIDEO], Jay "sinatraa" Won recently joined the NRG's Overwatch League roster and signed a $150,000-per-year contract with NRG Esports. Sinatraa and his future teammates will also be given 50 percent of team bonuses as well as other revenue sharing options based on Overwatch League rules.
