Ten Redskins earned six-figure bonuses through the NFL’s performance-based pay pool for 2013, according to league records.

The mechanism rewards those who outperform their base salaries relative to playing time. Most players who benefit from the program are young starters still on their rookie contracts, or players on veteran minimum deals who saw a significant of their team’s snaps.

Tackle Tyler Polumbus earned the biggest bonus among Washington's players, hauling in an additional $190,600. He was followed by rookie cornerback David Amerson ($173,375), running back Alfred Morris ($167,853), rookie safety Bacarri Rambo ($162,807) and tight end Logan Paulsen ($142,295). 

Wide receiver Aldrick Robinson, linebacker Perry Riley, running back Roy Helu and tight ends Jordan Reed and Niles Paul also earned bonuses in excess of $100,000.

In all, 60 Redskins received bonuses.

The bonuses will paid out April 16, 2016.
