Take four large steps. Go ahead, take them.

That's about how far Dallas Cowboys' running back Darren McFadden has to carry a football if he wants a $300,000 bonus check.

According to Brandon George of Dallas SportsDay, McFadden, who stands at 997 yards on the season, will receive $300,000 if he carries the ball for 1,000 yards this season with Dallas.

McFadden will very much likely get those three yards. In the last three games, McFadden has played a huge role in Dallas' offense, averaging just over 103 yards per game.

The Cowboys have completely rejuvenated McFadden's career. Over the last two seasons, McFadden rushed for just 913 yards in 26 games with the Oakland Raiders.

The Cowboys take on the Washington Redskins this Sunday at AT&T Stadium.
