Tim Tebow Earned An Extra $250,00 By Beating Steelers

What's even better than throwing an 80-yard game-winner in overtime to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers?

Earning $250,000 on top of it.

Tim Tebow, the Denver Broncos quarterback, triggered a salary escalator when the Broncos beat the Steelers in the AFC Wild Card game which means he's $250,000 richer. It's not unusual for contracts to have escalators in there for things like winning playoff games. We just didn't think Tebow would achieve those this quickly.

He has a chance to add onto that number next weekend: if the Broncos can beat the New England Patriots in the Divisional round, Tebow will earn another $250,000.

Tebow signed a five-year deal after the 2010 draft valued at $9.75 million but there's another $23+ million available in incentives (some he's likely to earn and some he's not).
