Default William Gay, others cash in

William Gay, others cash in

By James Walker

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback William Gay received some heat for his struggles in his first year as a full-time starter. But Gay did receive a nice bonus for his efforts.

On Tuesday, the NFL released its list of the top 25 players with performance-based bonuses. Gay earned the fourth-highest amount with $325,607.

The bonuses are based on playing time earned last season compared to their original salary level. Gay played in all 16 games for Pittsburgh and started 14.

Here is the full list of AFC North players who received sizable performance-based bonuses:

4. Gay, Steelers cornerback, $325,607

18. Kyle Cook, Cincinnati Bengals center, $268,122

24. Brandon McDonald, Cleveland Browns cornerback, $248,403

Good for him. Know it was tough sledding last year, but he wasn't as bad as people made him out to be. A lot of the "poor play" was attributed to scheme, which gets magnified ten fold when you lose your playmaker in Troy that makes the LeBeau defense go. It's not like we've always had elite corners up until this season. We haven't had one really since Woodson.

Like his potential and think he's a good fit in LeBeau's scheme. Hope things turn around for him next year.

I hope he will use the extra cash to make the trips to Pittsburgh to be with the team during OTA's .. cuz he definitely proved that he needs to be there.

Wow, performance bonuses for lousy performance. I have heard it all now. Kind of like a government worker. Oops. I shouldn't rag on them too much since I am a retired local government worker. : )

I think Parker is more deserving of a performance bonus. He did more to help the team by NOT playing than just about anyone else could've by playing. It was like getting rid of a reverse Pro Bowler.

He would look good in Black and Gold for the minimum. NOT

He's going to use part of it to buy a shovel to lean on during games. At least that way he can claim to be a Blue Collar government worker.
