Detroit Lions - Larry Warford tops in performance bonuses; nine with $100,000 or more

The NFL released the amounts for the performance-based bonuses for the 2013 season on Monday.

Nine of the Lions earned $100,000 or more based on performance — percentage of snaps played inverse to salary.

In other words, the lowest-paid players earn the biggest bonuses.

The bad news? They don’t get the checks until April 1, 2016.

The Lions will pay out $3.46 million overall.

Larry Warford benefited the most coming in at $260,630.

The others: Kris Durham $220,174; Rashean Mathis $188,695; LaAdrian Waddle $181,182; Bill Bentley $127,600; Joique Bell $122,700; Israel Idonije $104,195; Joe Fauria $100,961 and DeJon Gomes $100,493.
