Kedric Golston gets paid

Hat Tip: Extreme Skins.

Per KFFL.com:

Washington Redskins DT Kedric Golston received $247,445 from the NFL's "Performance Based Pay" system.
Additional details on the NFL's Performance Based Pay system here.
Under the system, Performance Based Pay is computed by using a "Player Index." To produce the index, a player's regular season playtime (total plays on offense, defense and special teams) is divided by his adjusted regular season compensation (full season salary, prorated portion of signing bonus, earned incentives). Each player's index is then compared to those of the other players on his team to determine the amount of his pay.

One hypothetical example is "Player A" in 2004 earning a salary of $600,000, playing in 50 percent of his team's plays. His bonus would total approximately $60,000. "Player B" has a salary of $6 million and took part in a similar percentage of plays. His bonus would be approximately $6,000.

Kedric Golston made around 275K last year and is nearly doubling that in Performance Based Pay per KFFL. I'll let the mathletes figure out how involved in our '06 defense that made him. Also, there is no associated cap hit with Performance Based Pay.
