""I definitely feel it's something deserving," Jackson said on locker-cleanout day, via Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com. "We'll see how that plays out, and hopefully we can work things out smoothly and not have to worry about anything out of the ordinary."
"Anything out of the ordinary" would include Jackson staying away from voluntary offseason workouts or holding out of training camp. The former would result in the squandering of a $250,000 workout bonus; the later would carry fines in the amount of $30,000 per day, along with partial forfeiture of his $2 million signing bonus allocation for 2014.
"But I definitely feel like it's deserving," Jackson said. "I'm proven in this league, and after this past year, went out there, no distractions, and just really put it all in for my team and went out there and had a lot of success, so we'll see how it goes."
He's due to earn a base salary of $10.25 million. Factoring in the signing bonus allocation and the workout bonus, that's a total cap charge of $12.5 million."
Best comment I saw:
"Howie Roseman said he would certainly give Jackson a $15M bonus effective immediately in good faith for a job well done in 2013. He asked that Jackson first refund the money paid in 2011 and 2012 when he was no better than Nate Burleson."
