Terence Steele leads Cowboys in performance-based pay bumps - Matthew Lenix, Cowboys Wire
Terence Steele went from undrafted rookie to starting offensive tackle due to a terrible string of circumstances for the Cowboys last year, and while Steele had his fair share of struggles throughout the season, he’s certainly made his money’s worth now.
Undrafted free agent tackle Terence Steele saw the field more than he could’ve ever imagined for the Dallas Cowboys in 2020. Due to a season-ending hip injury to starting right tackle La’el Collins, Steele played in all 16 games with 14 starts and gained much-needed NFL experience.
That’s not the only thing the former Texas Tech Red Raider will take away from his rookie campaign. ESPN’s Todd Archer reported that Steele will pocket a team-high $487,135 due to the NFL’s performance-based pay system.
