Brother, can you spare a dime?

Pey­ton Man­ning earned back half of the $4 mil­lion pay cut he ac­cepted last win­ter by lead­ing the Den­ver Bron­cos back to the Su­per Bowl. He can re­coup the rest with a win over Carolina in two weeks. Man­ning agreed to GM John El­way’s re­quest that he re­duce his 2015 salary to $15 mil­lion. But he did so with the caveat that he could earn back ev­ery penny by get­ting to and win­ning Su­per Bowl 50. Each mem­ber of the Bron­cos earned $46,000 Sun­day when they beat New Eng­land 20-18. The Su­per Bowl win­ners each get $102,000 and the los­ing team’s in­di­vid­ual share is $51,000. A wind­fall for some play­ers, pocket change for oth­ers. Man­ning earned $882,352 each week dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son.
