ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Peyton Manning earned back half of the US$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.
