    Does anybody know how much players get this year for the playoff games? [I seem to remember it being $50K-$100K.]

    I know that for the Bradys, Seymours, and Welkers of the world, it's not much, but for guys like Spach and Ventrone, it's nothing to sneeze at (especially for a guy like Bubba, who doesn't see the field all that much). . . .

    I'm not sure where I heard this, but it was 168.000 bucks each.

    That would be sweet for the younger players. Like a 25%-30% increase over the minimum.

    I read 80 grand for the afc winners and another 80 grand for the SB winners with the runner ups getting 40k for the sb so it looks like brady and Co will be depositing another 80 k next week

    Does the post season pay-offs count towards the cap or is that money exempt? This could be good chunk of change and the team already has cap issues for next year. Not that I am complaining about them going to the SB just wondering.

    Playoff payments do not count against the cap. The league is paying the talent for performing, essentially.

    There is also a league program that pays select minimum salary players additional funds based on their in season usage, and that doesn't count either. It's like a performance bonus for overachievers who substantially exceed the value of their compensation. That doesn't count either.

    Actually, that program applies to ALL players, but the payment is a function of either one's salary or one's salary cap number (I don't remember which).

    Here are a few paragraphs from the Globe about it:
