Back pay: Dolphins’ Jeff Wilson Jr. earns bonuses for 49ers advancing through playoffs

When the Miami Dolphins acquired running back Jeff Wilson Jr. from the San Francisco 49ers at the trade deadline, they got a strong runner who could be a great complement to Raheem Mostert.

Wilson played in eight games for Miami, rushing for 392 yards and three touchdowns on an impressive 4.7-yard average.

Even though his current team has been eliminated from the postseason, his former team is still alive, and each time they win, he receives bonuses.

According to CBS Sports’ Joel Corry, Wilson earned $69,000 because the 49ers advanced to the NFC championship game. If the 49ers were to defeat the Philadelphia Eagles, Wilson would be guaranteed another $82,000. That could actually turn into $157,000 with a 49ers title.

It was already rather likely that Wilson would support his former teammates in this upcoming matchup, but, with money on the line, there’s even more of a reason for the North Texas product to root for San Francisco.
