    Mills No. 1 in performance-based pay
    Posted Mar 24, 2014
    By Larry Mayer

    Bears tackle Jordan Mills will earn more money than any other NFL player via the league's performance-based pay program.

    Bears tackle Jordan Mills[​IMG] will earn more money than any other NFL player via the league's performance-based pay program, which compensates individuals based on playing time versus base salary.

    Jordan Mills
    According to figures released by the NFL Management Council Monday, Mills will receive a league-high $318,243.96. After being selected by the Bears in the fifth round of last year's draft out of Louisiana Tech, the 6-5, 316-pounder started all 16 games as a rookie.

    Under the plan, the pool for each NFL team is $3.46 million and all funds are deferred until April 1, 2016. Generally speaking, players with high playing time percentages coupled with low salaries earn the most money in the performance-based pay program.

    Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict ($315,847.69) is second behind Mills, followed by Cowboys guard Ronald Leary ($307,104.43), Panthers defensive back Melvin White ($269,714.80) and Browns safety Teshaun Gipson ($266,299.14).

    Mills is among nine Bears players who will receive at least $100,000. The others are safety Chris Conte[​IMG] ($210,957.33), nickel back Isaiah Frey[​IMG] ($179,411.35), cornerback Zack Bowman ($162,273.50), linebacker Jon Bostic ($143,309.22), guard Matt Slauson[​IMG] ($134,485.76), tight end Dante Rosario[​IMG] ($126,156.48), receiver Alshon Jeffery[​IMG] ($121,902.68) and defensive end David Bass[​IMG] ($111,228.98).

    The Packers have decided to pay Conte's bonus, as a reward for his performance in week 17 last year, using funds from the team stockholder ponzi scheme that their fans continually fall for.

    It's not really based on performance but rather some arcane formula that takes into consideration base pay vs snaps played. If it was based on performance he'd owe the Bears AND the NFL money. :D

    What's this "salary" word you speak of? What does that mean asks the terminally self-employed? ;)
