I never heard of this before. That's a nice chunk of change too. For Qudus that's about a 50% bonus.

Good for them.... they earned it.

If they play 12 years at an average of $1,000,000, they can retire easily. Many squander it, sadly.

Kind of makes you sick what some elite players make in comparison. Good for them, of course. But the super high salaries are ruining the game a bit too, IMHO.

I like the idea. Give everyone on the team a base for past performance and then salary increases are directly related to the player and team performance.

It could be the basis for a whole new league the PFL Performance Football League. Each position on every team has a base salary and a grocery list of incentives. Only way you change teams is via trade. No production? No $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. The season will be April - September. All I need now is a major TV contract!!
