EXTRA BUCKS! EAGLES SWEETEN BRANDON GRAHAM’S DEAL WITH SACK INCENTIVES!

By Steve Kelly

The Eagles have given defensive end Brandon Graham the chance to earn an additional $1.5 million over the next two seasons through incentives.

Graham, who was selected as a second-team All-Pro defensive end in 2016, was scheduled to make $6.5 million in base salary over each of the next two seasons, the final two of his current four-year deal.

Should Graham record more than seven but fewer than nine sacks this season, he’ll collect $250,000, with the chance to earn an additional $250,000 if he surpasses the nine-sack mark.

If Graham fails to reach nine sacks but is voted to the Pro Bowl on the original ballot or named to either the first or second All-NFL team (something he accomplished last year), he’ll earn $250,000.

His sack production and Pro Bowl status in 2017 also affects his 2018 salary. If Graham records seven to eight sacks, his 2018 base salary increases by $250,000; if he records nine to 11 sacks, his 2018 base salary increases by $500,000. If Graham records 12 or more sacks, his 2018 base salary increases by $750,000. And, if he makes the Pro Bowl on the original ballot or is named to either the first or second All-NFL team, his salary increases by another $250,000.

Graham can earn an additional $500,000 in 2017 and $1 million in 2018, bringing his total pay to $14.5 million over two seasons.
