Top 25 Performance-Based Pay Distribution For 2016

The NFL officially released the Top 25 Performance-Based Pay Distributions for the 2016 season on Thursday.

The NFL computes these payments based on:

Performance-Based Pay is computed by using a player index (“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 Performance-Based Pay. 

The Veteran Pool is computed in a similar manner, with two significant modifications: 1) Players with zero Accrued Seasons are not eligible to receive distributions, however, such players remain eligible to receive distributions under the Performance-Based Pay program; and 2) to calculate the eligible player’s Index, if the player’s full season base salary is less than $1 million, an additional amount will be imputed so that the player’s base salary equals $1 million. This imputation of salary is solely for the purpose of calculating distributions from the pool, and does not affect the actual salary paid to the player. 

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