It’s been a good year for Alex Cappa, and it continues to get better.
This week, it has been reported that the former Humboldt State star has earned an NFL-high dollar amount in performance-based pay for the 2020 season.
Performance-based payouts are rewarded to low-earning players who get a lot of starts and play a lot of snaps.
Cappa, the starting right guard for the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, started 17 games before suffering a season-ending injury in the playoffs.
He will receive $622,056 in extra pay, in addition to his base salary of $750,000.
The former Lumberjack just completed his third season with the Bucs after being drafted in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
