TO Just Misses Out on Some Incentives

As we already know, Terrell Owens is done for the year after being placed on the IR for a torn Meniscus that required surgery. He finished his season with an impressive 72 receptions for 983 yards and nine touchdowns. As of right now, TO ranks at No. 11 in total receiving yards in the NFL and he's tied in fourth place in total touchdowns.

TO's contract was for one year at a $2 million base pay and some incentives.

T.O. would receive an extra $330,000 for each of these:

60 catches, 100 catches, 900 yards, 1300 yards, 10 touchdowns, 14 touchdowns.

TO received an extra $660,000 for having more than 60 catches (72) and more than 900 yards (983). He just missed out on an extra $330,000 if he had one more touchdown.

According to TO's stats, if he would have been able to finish the season, he was projected to finish with 82 catches for 1,123 yards and 10 touchdowns. That would have netted him a total of $990,000 in incentives.

The incentives that he would have fallen short on -- 100 catches, 1,300 yards and 14 touchdowns -- have only been achieved by TO once or twice in his long career. He had 100 receptions in 2002 while playing for the 49ers. He had over 1,300 yards in 2000, '01, '02 and '07. And he had 14 touchdown receptions in 1998, '01, '04 and '07.

Even though some of his incentives were considered lofty, TO played well this season with the Bengals. Unfortunately, his play didn't transfer to a fully functioning offense or a winning record. It is expected that he will not be a Bengal again next year.
