Charles Woodson makes $250K for picking off Geno Smith
Leave it to New York Jets backup quarterback Geno Smith to gift Woodson his fifth interception, which just earned Woodson $250,000. Woodson’s contract contains a bonus incentive for accomplishing five interceptions in one season. We must wonder if he registers five more, does he get another quarter-mil?
Woodson is having an awesome 2015 season thus far. And, now he can add the $250,000 to the list of his proud accomplishments this year, which already includes twice picking off Peyton Manning — a quarterback he had yet to intercept before this season.
The future Hall of Famer now has a total of 65 interceptions on the books for his career, with only four other former NFL players surpassing him in this stat. All are Hall of Famers: Paul Krause, Emlen Tunnell, Rod Woodson and Richard Lane.
