Randomly came across this while looking at Fantasy Football info lol:
Redskins ILB Perry Riley's 2013 salary jumped from $575,000 to $1.323 million based on rookie-deal incentives.
Riley started all 16 games for the first time in his three-year career in 2012. He finished second on the team with 129 tackles, ten stops behind fellow inside 'backer London Fletcher. Riley, a fourth-round pick out of LSU, is entering the final year of his deal.
Brandon LaFell's 2013 base salary increased from $575,000 to $1.35 million after he hit escalators in his rookie deal.
LaFell has increased from starting two games as a rookie, to six as a sophomore, and finally 12 this past season. Working as the No. 2 receiver opposite Steve Smith, LaFell caught 44 passes for 677 yards and four touchdowns.

Haha, and Robertdnd still prolly thinks Perry and Kelvin were wasted scholarships on Georgia leftovers.

Ha ha! I remember that.
I remember both of those guys coming out and they were both 3-stars with the service I was with then. Good to see Riley and LaFell getting what they deserve with their bumps.
I think LaFell started out a 3 star as well and maybe was bumped up. Can't remember exactly.
Regards to All,
Yep I was there with you bud. They were, if I am remembering correctly, unanimous 3* on every site. I was not as high on Kelvin as I was on Perry. The guy just worked non-stop on getting better and he did.
I don't recall any bump.

LaFell was a throw in to get R. J. Jackson.
Perry Riley and Kelvin Sheppard have turned into solid Pros.
Even a guy like Ridley, who left too early and didn't get drafted until the third round, is getting rich. That's why LSU's losing 10 guys this year. I believe he made around $509,000 in 2012.
7/28/2011: Signed a four-year, $2,953,500 contract. The deal is fully guaranteed, including a $648,000 signing bonus. 2013: $643,500, 2014: $777,750, 2015: Free Agent
Every guy in LSU's locker room knows Ridley got a $646,000 signing bonus and $500K+, 600K+ and nearly $800K in successive years.
People forget that, too. The staff wanted RJ Jackson so bad that they took LaFell to hit on the package deal.

Living up here in the DC area, fans really like and appreciate how well Riley has done this year. Doesn't get a lot of hype but the knowledgeable fans up here know he has become a very valuable asset.
129 tackles and second in team tackles behind London Fletcher isn't anything to sneeze at.
One of the few times that package deal comes to fruition and it worked for LSU, just in reverse order.
Riley couldn't ask for a better mentor than Fletcher, either. The guy is a pro's pro.
