Bears’ Jordan Mills leads NFL in performance-based pay; Chris Conte second on team
No player in the NFL received more performance-based pay from last season than the Bears’ Jordan Mills.
The rookie right tackle received $318,243.96, according to the NFL Players’ Association, from a pool of about $3.5 million league-wide that compensates low-paid players for playing time.
The fifth-round draft pick made $446,000 in base pay as a rookie, and received a $164,800 signing bonus. But Mills started every game for the Bears, missing snaps only when breaking the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot on the first possession of the season finale against the Packers.
The player he replaced this season, tackle J’Marcus Webb, was fifth in the NFL in performance-based pay last season, making $275,360.
Safety Chris Conte was second on the Bears with $210,957.33. Cornerback Isaiah Frey was third, with $179,411.35
