After a preseason injury that left him out for the first few weeks of the season, QB Tony Romo was limited to just one series in Week 17.

On Wednesday, he received a staggering bonus for his play.

As part of the NFL’s performance-based pay program, the soon-to-be former Dallas Cowboys QB received just $64.11 for his touchdown leading drive.

Fourth round rookie QB Dak Prescott came in second when it comes to performance-based pay with $353K.

The year-end bonuses come from a pool distributed equally among all 32 teams, and the extra cash is based on how an athlete’s playing time relates to their earnings for the year.
