The 2010 NFL season was kind to Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe as he lead the NFL in touchdown receptions. In all, he ended with 72 receptions for 1,162 yards averaging 16 yards per catch. 

The season was also meaningful to his bank account.

Brian McIntyre of Mac's Football Blog compiled some numbers of various NFL players who triggered base salary increases in their contracts. 

His research shows Bowe, who was scheduled to make $690,000 in base salary next year, triggered an increase of $2.075 million. $2.765 million in base salary vs. $690,000 isn't bad.

These incentives usually come from playing time or performance. Falcons QB Matt Ryan, for instance, received a $1 million bonus for his Pro Bowl appearance. The biggest jump on his list is St. Louis Rams OT Jason Smith who had a base salary increase over $7 million.

Speaking of Bowe, just an FYI, but he's headed into the final year of his contract. It'll be interesting to see what the Chiefs do.
