    LACK OF PERFORMANCE -BASED PAY WILL COST SEVERAL GIANTS HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

    LACK OF PERFORMANCE -BASED PAY WILL COST SEVERAL GIANTS HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS



    "For the second year in a row, the NFL will not issue performance-based pay for players with
    minimal salaries who exceeded the investment made in them. For the New York
    Giants
    , players like Victor
    Cruz
    , Hakeem
    Nicks
    , Jake
    Ballard
    and Linval
    Joseph
    will go without what potentially could have been hundreds of
    thousands.












    Mike Garafolo of The Star-Ledger reports that instead of performance-based pay, the NFL has
    allocated the funds in other areas, namely the $3 million salary-cap exemption
    from 2011 and the three $1.5 million salary-cap exemptions in 2012.





    Performance-based pay will eventually return to the NFL, and is a
    part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, but exact details have not yet
    been hammered out. Accordingly, players like the aforementioned Cruz and Nicks,
    who each earned less than $580,000 in 2011, will not benefit from it.





    In 2009, defensive back Bruce
    Johnson
    led the team in performance-based pay, earning an additional
    $270,766 on top of his salary of approximately $311,000.





    Low-end salaries in 2011:
