Tony Romo earned $64.11 through league’s performance-based pay system

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo made a very short cameo on the field in Week 17 for the Dallas Cowboys.

In his only appearance of the 2016 season, Romo went 3-4 for 97 yards and a TD in a loss to Philadelphia… and that my friends, will earn you an extra $64.11 in the NFL.

NFL.com’s Dan Hanzus has a little insight: ‘We sifted through every team’s breakdown and it was Romo who received the smallest monetary bonus of any player in the NFL. By contrast, teammate Dak Prescott picked up an extra $354,544.57 for starting every game last season, playing in 67.49 percent of the team’s total snaps. Prescott had the second-biggest performance-based bump in the league.

No. 1 on the list? Falcons cornerback Brian Poole, who pocketed $371,783.11 for his extensive work with the NFC champions. Yeah, I know I could round these figures up or down, but there’s something fun — something … powerful — about having the full amount at my fingertips. ‘
