    It's a waste of money, but it's the result of not having much depth. Kind of a kick in the balls to have to pay Derek Newton an extra 175k to suck.

    Yeah, I was thinking their definition of performance differs from mine.

    This is the first I had hear of this, but apparently it's been around for a while.

    Teddy 3 rings was on the radio yesterday and he said this is something the Patriot players fought for because of Brady.

    Of course Brady was actually good though...

    I had never heard of it either. Does this effect salary cap?

    I like the idea, but not the implementation. If it's performance based, then Newton owes the Texans some money. If it's solely based on playing time, then the GM owes the Texans some money.

    I don't think so...

    I think it's just an extra pool of money that goes to the players...

    It's actually a pretty good chunk of change for some players....

    I know guys like Keo getting that check at the end of the year must feel nice.

    Yes, it is paid to the players as an incentive bonus.

    Oh wow...didn't know that. Guess I didn't read enough.

    Don't all the clubs get the same amount of money for this though?
