Foster's bonus is almost certainly triggered by being active on game day.
There are snap count triggered bonuses but they are typically on a per season rather than per game basis.
Claiming Foster is being just ready enough to get a bonus check is naive at best. He doesn't control whether he is active. That is a medical staff/coaching decision and they are used to basically every player say they are ready to go. Having money on the line would only make them more reluctant if anything.
