Brunskill given 49ers-high in NFL performance-based pay

NBC Sports

Offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill, who started all 16 games for the 49ers in 2020, was rewarded for his contributions on Tuesday.

Brunskill will collect a team-high $522,349 through the NFL’s performance-based pay program. Brunskill, an undrafted second-year NFL player, played 96.2 of the 49ers' offensive snaps while starting eight games at right guard and eight games at center.

The league-wide payouts are designed to reward players who outperform their contracts. Because of the losses in revenues due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the pay is deferred until 2024.

Each team received $8.5 million in performance-based pay.
