Ten Redskins players have six-figure compensation checks coming to them because of the amount of playing time they logged in 2013.

The NFL’s performance-based pay program is designed to compensate players who hold lower salaries but played more than their contracts would have suggested.

Each team receives a pot of $3.46 million to divide among its players. In Washington’s case, 60 players received additional compensation. The players, however, won’t receive these compensation checks until April 1, 2016.

Leading the way for Washington was right tackle Tyler Polumbus, who was awarded a compensation sum of $190,600. Last season he had a base salary of $800,000 with a prorated figure of $100,000. Polumbus started every game at right tackle.

CBS Sports ran a full list of all NFL players that will receive bonuses.

Here’s a rundown of the other players that received six-figure bonuses on Washington’s roster:

CB David Amerson, $173,375

RB Alfred Morris, $167,854

S Bacarri Ramb0, $162,807

TE Logan Paulsen, $142,295

WR Aldrick Robinson, $134,758

LB Perry Riley Jr., $129,997

RB Roy Helu Jr., $125,260

TE Jordan Reed, $108,461

TE Niles Paul, $103,475
