The Bills gave Matt Cassel a $58.73 bonus for playing one snap

Monday March 14th, 2016

Matt Cassel traveled around the league in a whirlwind 2015 season, spending a short amount of time with the Bills and Cowboys after the Vikings traded him in March, and got a performance bonus from Buffalo that could buy him 12 lattes.

Buffalo paid Cassel a $58.73 bonus on Monday, which was the lowest amount awarded around the league. He earned those six free months of Netflix by taking just one snap, on the Bills’ season-opening play.

I’m not trying to say anyone could have handed the ball to LeSean McCoy for a loss of six yards, but...yeah, anyone could have handed the ball to LeSean McCoy for a loss of six yards. That’s a righteous $58.73.

Enjoy that steak dinner, Matt. You sort of earned it.
