Tim Tebow Earns $250K Per Playoff Win

The more Tim Tebow wins, the richer he gets. At least when it comes to the playoffs. Tebow reportedly rakes in $250,000 for each playoff win. He already collected his first quarter million dollars on Sunday after beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime, 29-23. Will he do it again against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots?

No, he probably won't. But it's a possibility.

Tebow had to play at least 70 percent of the team's snaps to activate the contract clause that allows him to collect the big playoff pay day, which he did (in total, Tebow played 73 percent of the team's snaps). If Denver goes on to win the Super Bowl, that would be an extra one million dollars that Tebow would earn on top of his $1,618,750 base salary.

In the win over the Steelers, Tebow threw for 316 yards and a pair of touchdowns while rushing for one. On the season, Tebow had 1,729 passing yards and 12 touchdowns while rushing for 660 yards and six more scores. If there's one thing football fans have learned this season, it's that you should never underestimate Tebow. Never.
