The Green Bay Packers restructured kicker Mason Crosby’s contract for the 2013 season.  His $2.4-million figure for this season has been reduced to $800,000.  But Crosby can earn the $1.6-million back if he reaches certain incentives.

Crosby can earn $400,000 if he’s on the roster for Week 5.  He’ll see another $400,000 if he’s on the roster in Week 10.  He can earn $200,000 if he can hit 75% of his field goals and another $200,000 if he hits 80% of his field goals.  If Crosby hits 85% of his field goals, which is has done only once in his career, would get him another $400,000.

At this point in time, Crosby’s restructuring only affects this season.  His 2014 base salary is still $2.65-million and his 2015 number climbs to $2.8-million.

During the last two practices, when Crosby was competing for his job against Zach Ramirez, he hit 24 of 25 field goals.  He made both of his field goal attempts in last night’s 30-8 loss to Kansas City, hitting from 45 and 48 yards.

The Packers open the regular season a week from Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.
