Jordan Mills started all 16 games at right tackle for the Bears in 2013 and he will be rewarded because of it.
Mills, a fifth-round draft pick out of Louisiana Tech by Bears general manager Phil Emery in 2013, topped the NFL's performance-based pay list.
The PBP scale compensates players in which their level of playing time is greater than what their salary would indicate. Each club is given $3.46 million to distribute accordingly.
Mills' base salary in 2013 was $405,000 and his performance-based pay will reward him an additional $318, 243.86.
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was second in the league, earning an additional $315,847.69 in performance-based pay.
