Friday is the first payday for Donovan McNabb under the terms of his reworked contract; the Eagles quarterback is scheduled to receive a $2.8 million roster bonus, according to the numbers made available to NFL agents, local agent Jerrold Colton said.

As reported earlier, McNabb stands to make about $5 million more overall than the $19.2 million he originally was scheduled to make under his 2002 contract. He also is believed to have about $1 million in incentives, but exactly how those work was not part of the data Colton received, he said.

Colton said the Eagles fully guaranteed the $9.2 million McNabb was scheduled to make this season. In addition to Friday's $2.8 million, McNabb can earn $500,00 by being on the 45-man active roster - that is, uninjured - for all 16 games. Each game he isn't active, he loses one-sixteenth of that total, or $31,250.

In 2010, McNabb was scheduled to make $10 million. Now, his base is just $5 million, with $3.5 million guaranteed, vs. nothing previously. There also is a $6.2 million roster bonus, payable May 5, and the same $500,000 clause for being active in all 16 games.

So, McNabb can make $12.5 million this year and $11.7 million in 2010, $24.2 million total, before the incentives. *
