A center from the Super Bowl champions and a cornerback who made one of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history are among the players who earned the most additional pay for the 2015 season.
Matt Paradis is No. 1 on the list, raking in an extra $391,647.56. Patriots defender Malcolm Butler is No. 5, adding an extra $319,282.65.
