Chargers’ Jamaree Salyer earns salary boost with incentive system

The NFL announced its performance-based pay distribution for the 2023 season, and Jamaree Salyer was among the top 25 users.

Salyer earned more than $840,282 in the bonus program, a significant bump from his base salary last season.

The program rewards players with lower salaries who get a lot of playing time.

Salyer started all 17 games for the Chargers and played 99 percent of the team’s offensive snaps at right guard.

In his rookie season, Salyer started 15 games at left tackle in place of Rashawn Slater, who suffered a biceps injury in Week 3 that required surgery.

The top earner in the bonus program was Ravens guard John Simpson, a 2020 fourth-round pick who got $974,613.
