    Mgteich had asked me in a separate thread what players do I know have NLTBE incentives in their contracts


    Neal has a $100,000 NLTBE Pro Bowl incentive.
    Light has a $200,000 NLTBE Pro Bowl incentive.
    Lenon has $200,000 NLTBE incentives based on what I do not know.
    Springs and Wright may have NTLBE incentives based on media reports but the media could have confused incentives with salary escalators.

    Actually not as bad as I thought. I figured it would be over a million, possibly two. I don't see Neal getting the Pro Bowl incentive unless the Pats have another year like 2007. Mankins would get most of the guard votes for this team.

    That is all I know about. Could players have NLTBE incentives that I do not know about?? Yes.

    As soon as they are reached they count against the 2009 cap. Example - Koppen makes the Pro Bowl. His 2009 cap number would then go up by $200,000.

    Is Greg Lewis's incentive a bonus or salary escalator?
    And is there any difference in how those two incentives count against the 2009 cap?

    Thanks Miguel.

    He has $1.25 million escalators for the 2010 and 2011 seasons. He must not have reached his $1.25 million escalator for the 2009 season since his 2009 salary remained at $650,000.

    If you are referring to the $1.25 million escalators for the 2010 and 2011 seasons, they will not count against the 2009 cap.
