Players on the Kansas City Chiefs got a nice little bonus after winning the Super Bowl over the San Francisco 49ers.
According to CNBC, the Chiefs got $124,000 in bonus money per player after the huge Sunday night victory. That comes on top of the $87,000 they’d already earned through their postseason run. That brings the total to $211,000. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Players might also have other bonuses in their contracts for winning in the postseason. So, they all are going to get a nice bonus check after raising the Lombardi Trophy.
It’s never a bad thing when an extra $211,000 hits your bank account. That’s never a bad thing at all. Sounds like a pretty great day at work if you ask me.
There are a ton of guys on the Chiefs making so much money that $211,000 after taxes probably won’t even be noticed.
However, for some of the younger guys and guys deep on the depth chart, that is a substantial amount of extra money to take into the offseason.
It’s been a hell of a 48-hour run for the Chiefs. First, they win the Super Bowl against the 49ers and they’ll follow that up with a nice payday.
You can’t complain at all when you’re making a ton of money for a few hours of work.
