San Francisco 49ers guard Mike Person led the team in performance-based pay for the 2018 season, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. After starting all 16 games for the 49ers, he will receive $121,394 for his play last season.

"The Performance-Based Pay program is a collectively-bargained benefit that compensates all players, including rookies, based upon their playing time and salary levels," reports the NFL.

Person's salary in 2018 was $915,000. His 16 starts this past season were a career-high. Person ended the year as the team's third-highest graded offensive lineman and highest-graded guard, according to Pro Football Focus.

Person was scheduled to become a free agent this year but re-signed with the 49ers on March 3, inking a three-year deal worth up to $9 million with $3 million guaranteed. The team announced the signing the next day.

"Mike earned the respect of everyone in our building for the way he battled through injury last season to start all 16 games and perform the way he did," general manager John Lynch later said via a statement. "Aside from his toughness and durability, he brings tremendous versatility to our offensive line, and we look forward to his contributions to the growth and development of that unit. Mike is exactly the type of person and competitor we look for, and we are very happy to have gotten this extension done."
