Outside linebacker Mike Neal will make $8 million in salary and bonuses if he plays in all 16 regular-season games this year and next as part of his new two-year contract with the Green Bay Packers.

Neal's deal, first reported by Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY, will pay him $5 million this year, including a $2.5 million signing bonus, according to a source with access to NFL salary information.

The rest of his pay this season will come from a $2 million base salary; a bonus of $18,750 for each game he's on the 46-man game-day roster, or a total of $300,000 for the season; and a $200,000 workout bonus.

In 2015, Neal will receive a $1 million roster bonus on the third day of the league year, a $1.5 million salary, game-day bonuses again up to $300,000, and a $200,000 workout bonus.

He will count $3.75 million against this year's salary cap and $4.25 million against the 2015 cap.
