As part of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, the league awards performance-based pay each year. A $110 million pot is divided evenly among the league’s 32 teams, then divvied to players based on playing time and salary. The system is designed to compensate lower-salaried players who play a significant amount of snaps. Every player who plays a down during the regular season is eligible for a slice of the pie. For the Detroit Lions, rookie guard Warford was the big winner. He played every snap Mike Ribeiro Jersey on offense for the team last season and was awarded an additional $260.09. Only nine players received bigger bonuses. Chicago offensive tackle Mills, a fifth-round draft pick, paced the NFL with a $318 check. In Warford’s case, the bonus was worth more than 64 percent of his 2013 base salary. Eight other Lions — wide receiver Kris Durham, cornerback Rashean Mathis, offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle, cornerback Bil, running back Joique Bell, defensive end Olli Jokinen Jersey Idonije, tight end Joseph Fauria and safety DeJon Gomes — Hopefully none of the players are hard-pressed for money now. The bonuses are scheduled to be paid out 1. Below is the full list of performance-based bonuses awarded to Lions players:
There will never be another Shaquille O’Neal. The 7″, 330-pound mountain of a man was the definition of a beast, with the perfect combination of size, girth, braun, and I’m-going-to-dunk-you–the-basket-along-with-the-ball mentality. According to his Twitter feed, high school freshman has already received a scholarship offer from, and could be line for a few more. Now, he’s 6″, so he’s going to have to grow a few inches over the next few years. But the freshman already has more handle, passing skills, and a softer J than his pops. And he’s also got that Shaq Get out way look. Shareef currently plays at Windward School Los Angeles, and played on the California Supreme AAU team. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover. order to comment here, you acknowledge you have read and agreed to our Terms of Service.

1. You Might Be A Yellow Jacket… Sure, the most famous Tech – because we’re talking about the university here, I refer to them by their official name, The Institute of Technology – alumnus is, who was President of the United States and also won the Nobel Peace Prize, tellingly, not for being President Of The United States. But the GIT alumnus more recognizable to the majority of United States citizens is no doubt comedian Foxworthy, the famous you might be a redneck fellow and current host of Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? 2. Their Fandom Of Anheuser-Busch Products Rivals The St. Cardinals’. For years, the Cardinals’ played the Anheuser-Busch anthem Here Comes The King during the seventh-inning stretch – more colloquially known as the Clydesdale song – before moving it to the eighth inning when they moved to their new ballpark. The Tech band has a similar tradition; they play When You Say during the second-to-last timeout every home game. The fans respond by, according to Wikipedia, alternately bending their knees and standing up straight. I don’t know what that means. 3. REALLY Young. The Yellow Jackets are led by their two hot freshmen recruits, Young – who was born in – and Javaris Crittendon have been the team’s two best players all, the two leading scorers, the two dominant forces, if someone who is a teenager can ever be referred to as a force. The bad news is that they both very well might be gone after this year to the Draft. And I still can’t get over the fact that I was already going through puberty when these two were born.
