Ex-MU player Golden gets $1 million bonus

New York Giants linebacker Markus Golden (Affton, Mizzou) got his Christmas present a day early Tuesday when he learned that a league review of the Giants game against the Washington Redskins credited him with an extra half sack that triggered a $1 million bonus in his contract. By changing Golden's sack of Dwayne Haskins from a half sack to a full sack, Golden's sacks total grew from 9.5 to 10, which triggered the award.

Golden, playing on a one-year contract for $3.75 million before the bonus, figures to get a hefty contract as free agent in the offseason. He's been the Giants' best pass rusher, leading the team in sacks (10), tackles for loss (17) and quarterback hits (27). He had 12.5 sacks for Arizona in 2016 but an injured knee limited his effectiveness the last two seasons, when he combined for 2.5 sacks. The bonus was first reported by ESPN. (Staff report)
