Packers Workout Bonuses

Postby RingoCStarrQB » Tue Apr 22, 2014 3:22 am

That’s why, for the second straight season, the Green Bay Packers will lead the NFL in offseason bonuses paid to players in effort to lure them to voluntary offseason programs.

In 2013, the Packers reportedly shelled out more in workout bonuses than any other NFL team ($3,672,500), and according to ESPN, will do so again with another $4.3 million of next year’s $133 million cap allocated to 21 veteran players.
The Packers seem to believe that getting vital players to attend the ‘voluntary’ programs will be beneficial towards the overall progress and cohesion of the team (hard to argue) and don’t seem to mind paying out a little extra cash to make such happen.

So what about the players who don’t have the luxury of having any bonuses in their contracts? They get paid too — though it’s a paltry $175 per day.
