Everyone likes making some extra money. When there’s a chance for me to make some extra money, I take it because come on now, who doesn’t like making extra money? I know I do.
The NFL released its performance-based pay distribution on Wednesday. Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa was the leader for performance-based pay on the New York Jets. Enunwa will get an extra $327,537, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.
Rookie receiver Robby Anderson and Charone Peake will get a $148,835 bonus. The PBP allows low salary players to make extra money based on playing time and performance. The extra money doesn’t count against the salary cap.
Between the PBP and the veterans pool, Enunwa leads the Jets with $327,637. He is followed by Ben Ijalana ($276,774), Rontez Miles ($270,256), Wesley Johnson ($243,579) Anderson ($242,333), and Marcus Williams ($186,073).
It will be interesting to see how many Jets players earn extra money in the 2017-18 season.
