John Sullivan Strikes It Rich?

I’ll be honest, I’m not sure what this is all about.

The NFL apparently has a performance based pay system (which is news to me) and Vikings first year starting center John Sullivan received $400,000 via the system, which was the highest among all NFL players.

Again, not sure how this all works, but since Sullivan got the most money… I think it must be a flawed system.

Apparently the NFL included a little note to the players telling them to put the money into savings in case of a lockout. 

Great.

(Update:  Okay, a quick trip to Wikipedia told me that this system is designed to help players whose playing time was extremely disproportionate to their salary.  That makes more sense.)

    Probably not a bad idea I guess. Hopefully Sully kicks it up a notch this year and earns a better contract on his merits.

    Welcome to the Union Sully!

    So they have a baseline that you make a ton of scratch for not playing, and if by change you actually do play, you get more.

    What a freakin’ joke!

    He wasn’t the greatest and he was terrible but he was just barely average and I think we can upgrade in the draft.
