Peyton Manning will earn a $2 million incentive for making the Super Bowl, according to multiple reports.

Manning and the Broncos are headed to Super Bowl 50 after a 20-18 win over the Patriots in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game. Manning negotiated the bonus into his contract when he restructured his deal ahead of the 2015 season.

Manning made $15 million in base salary for the regular season. He can also earn another $2 million with a win in the Super Bowl.
