Chargers Clary Big Winner In NFL's Performance-Based Pay System

Posted: Updated:

San Diego Chargers tackle Jeromey Clary was the big winner in the NFL's performance-based pay system for 2008

Clary, a 2006 sixth-round draft pick from Kansas State, earned $405,859 in additional pay for his work with 8-8 San Diego. Clary was one of the few decent starters on an underachieving line last year.

Nearly $105 million in performance-based pay was distributed for last season. Created as part of the 2002 collective bargaining agreement extension with the NFL Players Association, the system gives financial compensation based on a comparison of playing time to salary.

Second on the list was Cardinals center Lyle Sendlein, who earned an extra $38,134, followed by Redskins safety Chris Horton ($342,197), Saints guard Carl Nicks ($335,033), and Browns cornerback Brandon McDonald (329,803).

Steelers tackle Willie Colon, who led the list a year ago with $309,534, was 16th this time at $267,422.

In all, 19 teams had players collect from the pool. The Steelers, Falcons, Bucs, Panthers and Dolphins had two each.
