Pennington Close to Getting His Money
New York Jets quarterback Chad Pennington needs to play about two more games to earn back the $6 million pay cut that he accepted in the offseason.
Pennington was coming off his second shoulder surgery for a torn rotator cuff and agreed to the reduction in income, from $9 million to $3 million, to avoid possibly being released by the Jets. As part of the agreement, Pennington was given the chance to earn back the lost income through incentives based on his availability. He needs to play 60 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps this season to get all $6 million, and playing 10 games should ensure him of that.
