Chris Harris Receives Performance Based Bonus

Justin Edmonds

Chris Harris got a nice payday from the NFL for his outstanding 2012 season.

In 2002 the NFL installed a performance-based pay program in which players have been payed nearly $700 million up to this point.

The league has a fund that is created and used as a form of player compensation based on a comparison of playing time to salary. The way the NFL determines the pay is they take his regular-season playing time and that is divided by his regular season compensation including incentives and signing bonus'. That number is than compared to other players on his team to determine the pay.

25 players in 2012 received this bonus.

Chris Harris, the number two corner for the Broncos had the 14th highest bonus receiving $254,164 for his strong performance. The highest amount was Bengals rookie linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who went undrafted in the NFL.

In 2012, Harris had a great season. He played 15 games with 61 tackles total. He had 2.5 sacks, 12 pass deflections , 3 interceptions and 2 touchdowns.

Harris was acquired by the Broncos in 2011 as a college free agent and has made a constant impact since joining the team.

Good find Mr. Elway and congratulations to Chris Harris.
