Default Colon & Smith hit bonus jackpot

I assume this is not a P-G idea of an April Fool's Day joke

Steelers' Willie Colon hits bonus jackpot

Willie Colon not only beat out Max Starks for the starting right tackle job for the Steelers last season, he beat out everyone in the NFL to earn top bonus money in the NFL's performance-based pay system.

The league announced today that Colon earned an additional $309,534, the highest bonus awarded under the system, which distributed about $100 million to lower-salaried players who gain the extra pay through playing time during the past season.

Safety Anthony Smith also picked up a nice bonus for his play in his second season. He earned an extra $227,721, which ranked 24th among those issued the extra pay for last season.

I guess Smith and Colon both met the incentive clauses in their contracts for best impersonation of a human turnstile by a player at their respective positions

I'd give Anthony Smith another quarter of a million if he's knocks Chad's toofs out again.

i still dont fully understand the nuances of the LBTE and NLBTE (likely vs. non likely to be earned) bonuses, but appearantly ben and james harrison earned some too because our cap is shortened by $1.9 mil this season.

I don't think Anthony Smith played all that bad last season. He's young and still learning. Yes he got smoked in our playoff loss.

Colon though.... I got nothing.

would have been nice to see Smith in the playoff game knocking people around rather than Tyrone Carter getting smoked

He didn't play at all in the playoff game. Tomlin made a big mistake and benched him.

What are you talking about??
