Safety Adrian Amos ($282,158.89) and left tackle Charles Leno Jr. ($215,110.41) led the Bears in performance-based pay.

Each NFL team received $3,802,500 in performance-based play to divide among players. The league-wide figures were released on Monday. Low-paid players are rewarded most.

Amos, a fifth-round pick last year, started every game as a rookie and made a team-high 108 tackles (per coach reviews).

A seventh-round selection in 2014, Leno took over for an injured Jermon Bushrod in Week 3 and remained the starter for the rest of the season.

Here are the Bears’ top 10 players in terms of performance-based pay:

1. S Adrian Amos — $282,158.89

2. LT Charles Leno — $215,110.41

3. LB Christian Jones — $194,881.46
