PLAYOFFSThe authors of the book go on to give specific amounts, but they are all listed as of 2016, when the book I own was published.Below, I have kept the format presented in the book, but updated numbers of the most recent post-season.Postseason amounts increase each year, and in 2019 (following the 2018 season), players received postseason pay of: $27,000 for a wild card game ($29,000 if they were division winner entering this round), plus $29,000 for the divisional round, plus $54 Sammy Baugh Jersey ,000 for the conference championship, and $118,000 for winning the Super Bowl or $59,000 for losing. The CBA defines postseason pay for ten yearsThe amounts for these payments are written into the CBA and defined for each year.I copied that table from pg 168 of the CBA and paste it here for reference:Qualifying for full pay, half pay, or quarter payPlayers don’t have to play in the game, or even still be on the team to get at least a partial payment for post-season play.There appear to be only two possibilities listed in the book, but looking at the CBA, I found that there is actually a third possible payment defined in the agreement.Players who are on the team during their playoff games receive full pay from the league pool, which is part of the Player Benfits bucket in the league-wide Player Cost.Players who had a significant role with the team during the regular season, but who are no longer with the team during post-season play (as in the Percy Harvin example) may qualify for half-pay.Certain First-Year players may qualify for 1⁄4 pay.I went to the CBA itself to find out how these three categories are defined.The information is on pages 168 and 169.I learned quite a lot, and I created a little ‘Decision Tree’ for determining how much playoff money a player qualifies for.I thought I would present it first, then provide the details copied and pasted from the CBA below it (worried that the legalese of the CBA provisions might scare too many people away from scrolling down to my decision tree).The Decision TreeThe decision tree is based on details copied directly from the CBA (emphasis is mine) and pasted below.To qualify for FULL PAY for playoff gamesA player who, at the time of the game in question, is and has been on the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game for AT LEAST THREE PREVIOUS GAMES (i.e., regular or postseason) will receive the full amount designated in Section 2 for such game.A player who, at the time of the game in question, is not on the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game but was on the Active or Inactive List for EIGHT OR MORE GAMES (i.e., regular or postseason) will receive the full amount designated in Section 2 for such game provided he is not under contract to another Club in the same Conference at the time of the game in question.A veteran player injured during the regular season and removed from the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game in question for reason of injury will receive the full amount designated in Section 2 for such game provided he is still under contract to the Club at the time of the game.If a veteran player who completed the season in which his fourth year or more of Credited Service ... was earned is injured during the preseason and, as a result, is removed from the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game in question, he will receive the full amount designated in Section 2 for such game provided that he is still under contract to the Club at the time of the game.To qualify for HALF PAY for playoff gamesA player who, at the time of the game in question, is and has been on the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game for LESS THAN THREE PREVIOUS GAMES (i.e., regular or postseason) will receive one-half the amount designated in Section 2 for such game.A player who, at the time of the game in question, is not on the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game Earnest Byner Jersey , but who was on the Club’s Active List or Inactive List for AT LEAST THREE AND NOT MORE THAN SEVEN games (i.e., regular and postseason) will receive one-half the amount designated in Section 2 for such game, provided he is not under contract to another Club in the same Conference at the time of the game in questionIf a first-year player is injured during the regular season and, as a result, is removed from the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game in question, he will receive one-half (½) the amount designated in Section 2 above for such game, provided that he is still under contract to the Club at the time of the game and had signed an NFL Player Contract or Practice Squad Contract during a prior League Year.If a veteran player who has NOT completed the season in which his fourth year of Credited Service ... has been earned is injured during the preseason and, as a result, is removed from the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game in question, he will receive one-half (½) the amount designated in Section 2 for such game provided that he is still under contract to the Club at the time of the game.To qualify for ONE QUARTER PAY for playoff gamesIf a first-year player is injured during the preseason and, as a result, is removed from the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game in question, he will receive one-quarter (¼) of the amount designated in Section 2 above for such game provided that he is still under contract to the Club at the time of the game and; (A) he was on that Club’s Practice Squad for eight or more games in a prior League Year; or (B) he received at least one, but fewer than three, regular season game checks while on that Club’s Active or Inactive or Reserve Injured list during a prior League Year.Note 1: “First year players” are not rookies.A “rookie” has never before signed an NFL contract.“First year players” have previously signed a contract, but did not qualify for an accrued season.An example of a first year player from the current Redskins roster is long-snapper Andrew East, who is 27 years old and has signed eight NFL contracts, but was on the roster for only 3 games in 2018.Note 2: For the clauses cited above that apply to “First Year Players”, the CBA says, “A player who has not signed an NFL Player Contract or NFL Practice Squad Contract during a previous NFL season is not entitled to postseason pay under [the relevant] Subsections.”PRO BOWLLike the playoff amounts, payment to players for being named to the Pro Bowl are listed in the CBA on page 170.I have copied the table, and paste it here to show the amount paid, increasing each season: As Antonio Brown tries to talk his way out of Pittsburgh, he’s also potentially talking his way out of other possible NFL cities before he even arrives. Which could set the stage for a fight between player and team that will make the Eagles vs. T.O. look like a mild dinner-table disagreement.Although Brown has largely curtailed his social-media agitation since Mr. Big Chest met with the Steelers’ Mr. Big, Brown’s comments on HBO’s coupled with his remarks to ESPN will make it harder, not easier, for the Steelers to find a trade partner. Which will make it more likely that the Steelers eventually will give Brown the “play for us or play for no one” ultimatum Dustin Hopkins Jersey , based by the leverage that comes from $11.4 million in unearned signing bonus money that Brown, if he chooses not to play for the Steelers, would have to repay.Brown nevertheless seems to be confident that the Steelers will take the best trade offer, from a team he finds suitable, that’s on the table before Brown’s $2.5 million roster bonus becomes due on March 17.“Why wouldn鈥檛 they not trade me?” Brown told ESPN. “They gotta pay me $2.5 million on March 17. If I invoice you March 17, $2.5 million that you gotta pay me, would you pay it or would you get somebody else to pay it? So it鈥檚 what — pretty much what鈥檚 good for their business. . . .聽They want to start a fresh offseason with no bad blood so their team could just focus on football. No distraction from any player. So I think they鈥檒l get it done.”Although Steelers G.M. Kevin Colbert told this week that the team could pay the money and still trade Brown later, the Steelers could pursue other strategies. They could suspend him for conduct detrimental to the team, place him on the reserve/suspended list, take the position that he’s not on the roster, and refuse to pay the money. They also could regard his comments about wanting out of Pittsburgh coupled with his remarks about not needing football as an indication that he intends to retire absent a trade, and they can place him on the reserve/retired list, forcing him to file a grievance based on the argument that he actually isn’t retired, and that he’s committed to playing for the Steelers.Or they could just pay the money and use it as added leverage to compel him to show up and play for the Steelers this year, since the $2.5 million would be added to the $11.4 million that he already has received but not earned.Brown seems to be banking on the team’s desire to turn the page on a potential distraction, and thus he’s willing to make as much of a distraction as possible in order to get the Steelers to move on, even if he resents being regarded as a distraction. Unless the planets align before March 17, with a team for which Brown is willing to play giving the Steelers what they want and giving Brown what he wants and being willing to assume the risk that a guy who says “if they wanna play, they going to play by my rules” means what he says, the Steelers will have to decide whether to pay Brown the money and keep trying to trade him or pay Brown the money and ultimately keep him, even if he doesn’t want to stay, with a plan to embrace the distraction and use the $13.9 million in unearned pay as leverage to get him to realize how good he has it and move forward.However it plays out, Brown is openly daring the Steelers to play hardball. At some point, maybe they will.
