Tim Tebow did a lot of things Sunday that no one expected (like throw for exactly 316 passing yards). One such thing: unlocking a $250,000 bonus in his contract for winning a playoff game.

A clause in Tebow's contract paying him that money was activated on Sunday night according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, when Tebow won a playoff game. For every playoff game that Tebow wins, provided he's taken 70 percent of his team's snaps in a season, he gets an additional $250,000.

Tebowmania

We already knew that Tebow unlocked a $472,000 bonus for playing in more than 45 percent of his team's snaps back in December.

Closing out the season as the starter, Tebow passed the 70-percent threshold and now is owed an additional $250 GRR.

If the Broncos somehow manage to topple New England, Tebow will be in line for an additional bonus. (And the same is true up through the Super Bowl, giving Tebow the potential to earn an extra ... one million dollars.)

And you know what's almost as funny as Austin Powers jokes? Thinking back to before the season and imagining a world where Tebow not only played in 73 percent of the Broncos plays in 2011, but discussing the possibility of him making an extra quarter-million as a result of beating the Steelers in the playoffs.

Yet, somehow, here we are.

Tim Tebow unlocks $250K playoff bonus in contract

Cardiologists make $400k a year and work about 60hours a week.  A Cardio-Thoracic Surgeon makes 5 to 12 mil a year depending on the part of the country he's in and works about 60 hours a week.  You don't want him too tired when he's got your chest opened up.  I'm guessing your point is atheletes are over paid...duh!  Any more medical questions can be sent to me...I am a nurse and da name is Silky Smooth!

He should donate it to charity because he doesn't deserve it.

Heart surgeons? Work 80-100 hours a week and make 400K before taxes. And they're...heart surgeons. We really need to stop treating atheletes like they're gods.
