Davis, Winters leaders in performance pay
By Rich Cimini
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The NFL released its performance-based pay distribution for the 2013 season. Not familiar with this deal? The league uses a formula, based on compensation and playing-time percentage, to reward players with a bonus-type payment.
Basically, it helps the players with lower salaries make extra coin if they play a lot. The downside is the players don't get the money until April 1, 2016.
On the New York Jets, a total of 63 players made $3.46 million in performance pay. The Jets' leaders are listed in the chart at right.
Here's the full list of 2013 performance-based pay distributions.
