NFL’s “Performance Based Pay” system
 
Anyone want to clear up what this is? From what I gathered, you get can get suplements based on playing time and your contract. Gibril Wilson got $200,000 or so though it.


Any experts?

I don't really understand it...but Joey Galloway will get a $100,000 bonus if he runs a 4.40 in training camp this year.

I remember there was an article on ESPN for it last year when Kerry Rhodes set a record for the highest supplemental check ever. Basically, the league analyzes players who are making around the league minimum and outplay their contract in terms of impact and playing time and give them a nice little bonus. It's not a huge amount and is at the discretion of the league. It also doesn't count against the salary cap, because the teams aren't paying it, and it's not a bonus or incentive that was agreed upon contractually.

Thats basically it. Dawan Landry got the most this year. Being a 5th round pick and I believe starting every game. But then again I'm not really sure how it works because Barry Cofield was a 4th round pick and started every game and wasn't even in the top 25.

Its not just playtime based...its also production based. Landry was more productive than Cofield so he got paid more.

I wonder if Walt Harris got any....I think he only had a salary of 800k or so this year.

How do you value production? Of couse a safety will rack up more "stats" than a NT.

I'd also be interested to see how much Mark Anderson got. There is a guy with production but not much playing time.

Does it really matter? After all it really has no effect on the NFL at all.

It's perks for players to strive for to keep their body in tip top physical shape to most benefit the team and they also benefit their wallets as well

255979119 03-27-2007 05:53 PM

If trying to win a SB doesn't keep you in good shape, then get the hell out of the league.

it kind of goes hand in hand, doesnt it? You need to relax. Some people simply work harder than others, and the NFL rewards them for it. Some one had a question about it, and it was answered. No reason to get all worked up about it.

Yeah, I'm serious.
Its half of some workout incentive regiment thing.

That Joey Galloway bonus would be something that is in his contract, paid by the team, not paid by the league.

Its still moronic. Players should be motivated anyways not just because of contract incentives.

BTW are you TrenT on the bbs.buccaneers.com site?

HawkeyeFan 03-27-2007 09:08 PM

I don't even know that this means but two Rams got it ( Richie Incognito and Todd Stuessie )

mcdlaxbonz13 03-27-2007 10:24 PM

i like the idea of rewarding players for out performing their contracts, davin holly of the browns received the 17th highest amount making 217,000, that to me is quite a nice bonus

Well, that bonus is probably ther to protect teh organization as much as it is to motivate Galloway. They're paying that money for a speed receiver, but if he loses his speed, they pay less money.

And yes, that is me.

MP123 03-27-2007 11:53 PM

I saw something on nfl.com that said the max bonus a player could get is 21%.

I knew it, It was that sig. The screwed up hit the the left reminded me of yours on the TBBBB.

XxXdragonXxX 03-28-2007 02:28 AM

Yeah, I use that sig on all the NFL boards I visit...unfortunately Hamlin is no longer a Seahawk, so I'm gonna have to make a new one.
