What did you get for your holiday bonus last year? It just might have been more than some NFL quarterbacks.
Ten players, including four QBs, received less than $500 in performance-based pay for the 2015 season.
The money comes from a fund that supplements salaries of players whose playing time is disproportionate to their salary, and each team divvies up $3.802 million among their players.
(Here's a list of the players who earned the biggest performance bonuses.)
Here are the 10 players who got the smallest bonuses:
Cassell played just one snap for the Bills before being traded to the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 22. But don't worry; he played 417 snaps with Tony Romo injured and earned a bonus of $28,241.22 for his time in Dallas. Now he's a member of the Tennessee Titans.
A sixth-round pick out of Kansas State in 2015, Evans played just a single special-teams snap for Philadelphia. It came during the Eagles' win over the New York Giants in the regular-season finale. Here's hoping Evans can get on the field on defense in 2016.
Like Cassel, Siemian played just one snap, and it was glorious. With Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler gone to the Houston Texans, Siemian and recently acquired Mark Sanchez are the only two signal-callers on Denver's roster -- for now.
Munyer also got in on only one special-teams play after spending most of the season on the practice squad. You can buy the jersey of the undrafted rookie out of Colorado here.
Hall played one play, on offense, for the Browns in the regular-season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Shockingly, Hall played only 80 fewer snaps -- and with zero catches had five fewer receptions -- than Dwayne Bowe, who got $9 million guaranteed before the 2015 season. Bowe, by the way, earned a $2,846.14 performance-based bonus.
Moore got seven snaps, and he was a perfect 1-of-1 passing. Now a free agent, Moore recently visited the Cowboys.
Edwards played two defensive snaps for the Bears in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals in September, but he didn't last long in Chicago. Now a member of the Bills, Edwards could get a look as a replacement for Mario Williams.
Ross played two special-teams snaps in the Chargers' regular-season finale against the Broncos after being signed a few days before the game. The defensive back who has spent time in Oakland and Miami is a free agent.
After missing a 46-yard field goal and playing six snaps in the first game of the season, the Redskins cut Forbath. But the story has a happy ending: Forbath was picked up by the Saints in October, and he went 9-of-13 on field goals with New Orleans. He also earned a $17,498.79 performance-based bonus for his time with the Saints.
