NFL Contracts Explained: Workout Bonus

Some contracts also have workout bonuses, which a player earns by participating in an agreed upon percentage of the team’s offseason workout program. Most big contracts contain these bonuses as an incentive to get veteran players to attend voluntary workouts.

A similar type of compensation is a reporting bonus. A player earns this bonus by reporting to camp on time. Darelle Revis’ second contract with the New York Jets contained this provision. The team included it because of the training-camp sagas the team endured with the star corner. Revis earned $1 Million for showing up to camp on time in 2011 and 2012.
