Contract Incentives on the Line for Odell Beckham Jr. and the Stars of Super Bowl LVI

From Odell Beckham Jr. and Andrew Whitworth to Trey Hendrickson and Vonn Bell, tracking the cash bonuses for grabs in Sunday’s Rams-Bengals Super Bowl.

For everyone playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, it’s likely one of the biggest and most important games and days of their careers and lives. And for some, a little more is on the line thanks to the contract incentives that can come with playing in or winning the biggest event in sports.

Just like superstars including Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, and Rob Gronkowski cashed incentives in Week 18 to close out the regular season, a dozen players participating in this weekend’s famous Bengals-Rams clash at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium have a chance to cash in even more.

And If you’re Odell Beckham Jr. or Andrew Whitworth, you’ve got six- and seven-figure bonuses riding on the Rams‘ first championship since their St. Louis “Greatest Show on Turf” days.

Let’s run down the list.
