Top 25 Performance-Based Pay Distribution For 2015

The NFL officially released the Top 25 Performance-Based Pay Distributions for the 2015 season on Tuesday.

The NFL computes these payments based on:

Performance-Based Pay is computed by using a “player index.”  To produce the index, a player’s regular-season playtime (total plays on offense, defense and special teams) is divided by his adjusted regular-season compensation (full season salary, prorated portion of signing bonus, earned incentives).  Each player’s index is then compared to those of the other players on his team to determine the amount of his pay. 

Here’s a look at who received the biggest pay distributions from last year:
