due to their performances in 2010, offensive tackle Russell Okung, defensive end Chris Clemons and running back Marshawn Lynch triggered escalators for their base salaries for 2011.
According to the report, Okung’s 10 starts as a rookie triggered an escalator that added $500,000 fully guaranteed to his base salary in 2011, and an additional $5 million in fully guaranteed salary to his 2012 salary, so he’ll earn $1.4 million in base salary in the upcoming season and $6.48 million in 2012.
Clemons, who finished with 11 sacks on the year, initially was scheduled to earn $2.3 million in 2011. But his performance in 2010 triggered an $800,000 escalator in his contract, raising his 2011 salary to $3.1 million.
Lynch was set to earn $1.14 in the final year of his rookie contract. However, because he ran for 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons, Lynch added $1 million to his 2011 base salary, pushing it to $2.14 million.
