David Bakhtiari Leads All Packers in Performance-Based Pay

Due in large part to becoming the Packers' starting left tackle, David Bakhtiari earned the most performance-based compensation of any player in Green Bay.

While the NFL has yet to reveal this year's compensatory draft selections (of which the Packers could earn as high as a third rounder), the league did announce performance-based pay for each team.

The performance-based pay system is designed to compensate players -- usually those still signed to their rookie contracts -- who play significantly more snaps than their salary contemplates. This generally benefits late-round picks and undrafted players who become starters the most.

As for the Packers, 2013 fourth-round pick David Bakhtiari earned the most performance-based pay on the team with $256,882.22. Fellow offensive lineman Don Barclay followed close behind with $236,693.64.

The full list of performance-based compensation for each team can be found here. It's interesting to note that even Aaron Rodgers, the Packers $110 million quarterback, apparently didn't earn enough this past season, netting an additional $5,391.36.
