Proven Performance Escalator Projections

These tables display which players are currently projected to qualify for the Proven Performance Escalator (PPE), a fourth-year salary escalator for players on drafted rookie contracts not drafted in the first round.

Article 7, Section 4 of the 2020 Collective Bargaining Agreement governs the PPE, establishing three levels of qualification:

  • The Level One PPE is earned if a player participates in a certain percentage of a team's offensive or defensive snaps in two of his first three seasons, or averages that percentage of offensive or defensive snaps over his entire first three years. For 2nd round picks, the average is 60%, and (as was the same in the 2011 CBA) for 3rd-7th round picks it is 35%.
  • The Level Two PPE is earned if a player participates in at least 55% of a team's offensive or defensive snaps in all of his first three seasons.
  • The Level Three PPE is earned if a player is selected to a Pro Bowl on the original ballot (not as an alternate) in any of his first three seasons.

Players eligible for the PPE will see their fourth year base salary escalate, based upon the restricted free agent (RFA) tenders for that season, as follows:

  • The Level One PPE will raise the base salary to the amount of the Original Draft Round RFA tender.
  • The Level Two PPE will raise the base salary to the amount of the above tender, plus $250,000.
  • The Level Three PPE will raise the base salary to the amount of the 2nd round RFA tender.
