Peyton Manning Pockets $2 Million For Win Over Patriots

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) – Peyton Manning earned back half of the $4 million pay cut he accepted last winter by leading the Denver Broncos back to the Super Bowl.
He can recoup the rest with a win over Carolina in two weeks.
Manning agreed to GM John Elway’s request that he reduce his 2015 salary to $15 million. But he did so with the caveat that he could earn back every penny by getting to and winning Super Bowl 50.
Each member of the Broncos earned $46,000 Sunday when they beat New England 20-18.
The Super Bowl winners each get $102,000 and the losing team’s individual share is $51,000.
A windfall for some players, pocket change for others.
Manning earned $882,352 each week during the regular season.
