Robert Griffin III has the opportunity to restore his reputation in Cleveland and fatten up his wallet a little more.
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Griffin signed a two-year, $15 million deal, but can make upwards of $7 million in incentives over the next two years, bringing the total value of his deal with Cleveland to $22 million.
Here’s how the incentives break down.
RG3 can earn $500,000 a year if he plays more than 75 percent of the offensive snaps, and $1.5 million if he participates in 90 percent or more, meaning he can earn $3 million in total by staying healthy and holding on to his job.
If his passer rating surpasses 93, he will earn $1 million a year. If he passes for over 4,000 yards, he’ll earn another $1 million, $500,000 if he finishes between 3,500 and 3,999 yards, and $250,000 if he throws between 3,250 and 3,499 yards.
