 Julian Edelman had a $500,000 incentive for achieving any of the following: 1,057 receiving yards; 70 catches and seven touchdowns; 80 catches and 13 wins; 80 catches and a Super Bowl appearance. Edelman finished with 98 catches for 1,106 yards and three touchdowns, plus 14 wins and a Super Bowl title.

Edelman also earned a $250,000 bonus for participating in offseason workouts and $750,000 for playing in all 16 games ($46,875 per game).
