Phire Posted August 10, 2017 Share Posted August 10, 2017 Quote The Eagles reworked the contract of defensive end Brandon Graham, who can now earn an additional $1.5 million over the next two seasons through incentives and escalators, an NFL source said. ESPN was first with the report and provided more detail. Graham’s base salary remains at $6.5 million for the next two years, but he can increase his pay by reaching certain sack totals and by making the Pro Bowl or the all-pro team. Graham had his best season in 2016 and was a second team all-pro. He notched only 5-1/2 sacks, though. If he records more than seven sacks and fewer than nine in 2017, he’ll earn $250,000. If he finishes with more than nine sacks, he’ll collect another $250,000. If Graham falls short of nine sacks but is voted to the Pro Bowl or named first- or second-team all-pro, he’ll still get that $250,000. He has extra incentive to perform this season because his 2017 numbers and end-of-the-season honors could affect how much more he can make in 2018. If Graham notches seven or eight sacks, his 2018 salary will increase by $250,000; nine to 11 sacks, $500,000; and 12 or more sacks, $750,000. And if he makes the Pro Bowl or the all-pro team, his salary jumps an additional $250,000. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
