Earlier today, Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.com wrote a post on the NFL’s list of Performance Based Pay for the 2013 season.
The League Pool is $3,460,000 Per Club. The system calculates the amount of playing time vs the player’s salary for that season. Usually backups and players making the minimum that assume a large chunk of playing time rack up the big numbers.
The amounts do not count against the salary cap and are not to be paid until 4/1/2016.
From Aaron WIlson of the Baltimore Sun:
The fund was created in 2002 under the collective bargaining agreement to supplement player compensation.
The money is computed through an index based on a players’ regular-season playing time, fully salary, prorated portion of signing bonus and earned incentives compared against other players on the roster to figure out how much they should be paid.
