As detailed by Jason La Confora of CBSSports,com, the NFL has released its annual list of performance-based pay.
As noted in the story “the performance-based pay program works to compensate players whose level of playing time was much higher than what their salary would have paid.”
And as might be expected the Seahawks had a few players who made it pretty well, led by guard J.R. Sweezy, who started all but one game in 2013 and netted $258,414.02 in performance-based pay, ranking ninth on the list. Sweezy played 952 snaps in 2013, 94.1 percent of available plays, second on the offense behind Russell Wilson’s 96.2 percent
