No. Guaranteed contracts are forbidden under the NFL's bargaining agreements with its players. Guaranteed portions of contracts are allowed, as are signing bonuses.
Not all NBA contracts are guaranteed. Many players must earn their roster spot to earn their money. One example of this is that first round draft picks have guaranteed contracts, but draft picks after that must make the team before or their contracts are terminated.

The difference is the Union. The NBA have guaranteed salaries in their CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement). The NFL does not have clauses that guarantee the entire salary, but the signing bonuses are the guaranteed portion of their contracts.
No. Baseball contracts are two-way deals that are guaranteed on both management and a player's behalf. In other sports, contracts are not guaranteed, and the player can be cut at any time. The player on the other hand cannot void his deal. Therefore his only option for getting a better deal is to use a hold-out to pressure management into giving it to him.
The total amount spent on pro athletes is 65 billion dollars. This is not a steady figure because endorsement contracts are continuously changing.
