Vikings’ Camryn Bynum gets $785k raise from NFL based on performance

Each year, the National Football League awards performance-based play payouts for players who aren’t first-round picks and have played above their paychecks. This year, the NFL awarded 25 players extra money anywhere from $738,916 to $974,613. 

Minnesota Vikings safety Camryn Bynum is one of those players and the NFL awarded him $785,489, the 15th most in the league.

Bynum was a fourth-round pick of the Vikings in 2021 out of California where he played cornerback. Without the requisite athleticism to thrive at cornerback, the Vikings moved him to safety where he has developed into a rising star at the position.

Going into the final year of his rookie contract, Bynum is set to make $3.116 million and could make significantly more on an extension.
