* QB Drew Bledsoe has increased his base salary next season from $500,000 to $5 million because of contract incentives, namely throwing 22 touchdown passes. He only needed to surpass last season's total of 20 in Buffalo to reach the incentive.
Bledsoe has had an up and down season in his first year with the Cowboys, but he does have the team on the verge of a possible playoff berth with a win Sunday over St. Louis and either a loss by the Redskins or Panthers.
* WR Terry Glenn has already earned $225,000 in bonuses. He got $150,000
for gaining over 1,000 yards in receiving. He got $75,000 for notching at
least 60 catches. Glenn has 60 catches for 1,092 yards.
The former New England Patriot and Green Bay Packer has emerged as one of the biggest downfield threats for Dallas this season.
* DE Greg Ellis is watching $250,000 go out the window. His contract
calls for a $250,000 bonus for 10 sacks or more. Ellis had eight sacks
through 11 games but has none over the last four games as his playing time
has suddenly diminished.
Ellis is likely headed elsewhere this offseason.
