How do incentives work in the NFL in respect to salary cap? For example last season, if Nick Foles played 3 more snaps against the Redskins, he would have received $1,000,000 based on total plays that season.
However, how do those contract incentives work? Do they count toward the salary cap? I assume they would have to, as you could simply play a player $1, then give them easily reachable bonuses and incentives.
