The Packers had three players make at least $200,000 in the NFLís performance based pay system: David Bakhtiari, Don Barclay and M.D. Jennings.

The system is part of the NFLís collective bargaining agreement and attempts to reward the lowest-paid players who play the most, though everyone who plays in a game gets at least a nominal bonus. Each team received $3.46 million for the bonuses and distributed it to players based on a formula of playing time and salary.

Bakhtiari led the team with a bonus of $256,882. He started at left tackle, played 1,119 of a possible 1,122 offensive snaps, and had a salary cap figure of $518,850 as a rookie.

Barclay was second at $236,693. He played 85.9 percent of the offensive snaps as a tackle and guard. He entered the league as an undrafted rookie in 2012 and last year had a cap figure of only $390,833.

Jennings' bonus is $201,0938. He entered the league undrafted in 2011 and had a cap figure of $561,400 last season. He played 75.1 percent of the Packersí defensive snaps and 38.1 percent of their special teams snaps.

The biggest bonus in the league went to Chicago Bears tackle Jordan Mills at $318,243. The rookie was a fifth-round draft pick -- a round later than Bakhtiari -- who played 70.3 percent of the Bearsí offensive snaps

The Packers paid the bonuses to 65 players. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers received a small bonus ($5,381) even though he signed last year a new contract that included a $35 million signing bonus and a $12 million cap figure for 2013.

Starting this year the NFLPA worked out a deal with the league to defer the bonus, so the players wonít receive this money in 2016.
