Bears SS Major Wright's 2013 salary jumped from $575,000 to $1.323 million based on rookie-deal incentives.
Wright started all 16 games in 2012 and was a key part of Chicago's turnover-forcing defensive backfield. He set new career-highs in tackles (71), passes defensed (eight), and interceptions (four), while also scoring a touchdown. Wright enters the final year of his rookie deal and could be a candidate for extension. The Bears defense shouldn't change too much under new DC Mel Tucker.
