He uses his performance bonus and gets less than expected.

Safety Tony Jefferson recently got his performance bonus check. For his playing time last season and the fact he has been on an undrafted rookie contract, he was paid over $240,000 for outplaying his deal. He splurged a little bit on his mom and also learned a lesson in taxes with the check.

Here's what he shared through his Twitter account:

He joked the Mercedes he got his mom might need to turn into a Pruis or a Camry.

We all have felt Jefferson's pain at some point, getting paid something and then realizing how much less it is because of withholdings.
