NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Thirteen members of the 2015 Tennessee Titans received at least $100,000 in performance-based pay.
The money comes out of a fund that supplements salaries of players who don’t make a big salary, but do play a high number of snaps. A total of $3.802 million is divided among players on each team.
For the Titans, here are the five guys who got the most:
Inside linebacker Avery Williamson: $269k
Defensive end DaQuan Jones: $181k
Outside linebacker David Bass: $171k
Center Andy Gallik: $166k
Running back Antonio Andrews: $154k
Safety Daimion Stafford: $154k
Williamson and Jones played more by design and on merit.
Andrews played 35.6 percent of the snaps, a total that mounted late in the season as he started 10 games largely because of the failures of Bishop Sankey.
Stafford started twice, but he accumulated snaps by playing a lot in dime packages, really functioning as a linebacker. He wound up at 42.3 percent of the defensive snaps.
