Sanchez pocketing extra dough

By Rich Cimini

Mark Sanchez is getting richer with each playoff victory. As ESPN'S AFC North blogger James Walker reported last month, the New York Jets' quarterback receives a $250,000 bonus for each playoff victory. The meter is up to $500,000 -- and counting.

If the Jets go all the way, which would mean two more wins, Sanchez would earn a cool $1.875 million in bonuses. That was an incentive clause in his five-year, $44.5 million contract, which he signed in 2009.
