Last week we learned that Akiem Hicks and Corey White would both be getting salary increases for the 2015 season after meeting playing-time incentives this past season. But they're not the only Saints players who be getting a little extra something-something.

Michael Ginnitti over at Spotrac has a list of five players who will cash in when the 2015 NFL league year officially begins:

  • March 12: LB Junior Galette receives a $12.5M roster bonus, and his $1.25 million salary for 2015 becomes fully guaranteed, bringing his total dead cap up to $17.45 million.
  • March 12: TE Jimmy Graham receives a $5 million roster bonus, and his $2.9 million salary for 2015 becomes fully guaranteed, bringing his total dead cap to $16.9 million.
  • March 12: S Jairus Byrd receives a $6 million roster bonus, and his $2 million salary for 2015 becomes fully guaranteed.
  • March 12: LB David Hawthorne receives a $2.5 million roster bonus.
  • March 12: LB Curtis Lofton receives a $4.5 million roster bonus.
