49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley put together a solid 2011 season and by season's end he had earned a spot on the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl roster. It turns out that selection was worth a little something extra to Staley.
According to Brian McIntyre (a solid source for NFL contract info), Staley will get a bump in the remaining base salaries. His base salaries from 2012 through 2017 will each increase $500,000. For 2012, that raises his base salary from $1.3 million to $1.8 million. This Pro Bowl boost will earn him an additional $6 million through the life of the contract if he remains with the 49ers through 2017.
