McDougald, Alexander draw Bucs' biggest bonuses



The NFL has released its annual performance-based bonuses, given across the league to low-paid players who earn significant playing time, and safety Bradley McDougald got the Bucs' largest bonus check with $222,054.

That works out to about 38 percent of McDougald's 2015 base salary of $585,000 -- he already had good news when the Bucs decided last week to give him a second-round tender for 2016, with a salary of $2.55-million.

1. Bradley McDougald, S   $222,054
