Just a small note on some great number crunching from Brian McIntyre.
Brian notes each NFL player who is in line for salary increases in 2012, including two members of the Green Bay Packers.
T.J. Lang and Desmond Bishop will see their base salary increase next season. Lang is being rewarded for hitting playing time incentives in the fourth year of his contract while its not immediately clear what incentives Bishop has reached.
Lang, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal, was scheduled to make $615,000 but will now pull in $1,260,000 in base salary next year. Bishop, who was slated to make $2,826,000, will receive a modest bump up to $3,001,000.
UPDATE: Brian has added another Packer to his list: Defensive lineman B.J. Raji’s salary for 2012 will go from $2,150,000 to $3,350,000, an increase of $1,200,000.
