Report: Jets' Ferguson stands to lose $750,000 workout bonus

Should the NFL lockout keep lingering, Jets left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson is in jeopardy of losing his league-high $750,000 workout bonus, the *New York Daily News* reported Wednesday.

Ferguson, a Pro Bowl pick after the 2009 and 2010 seasons, signed a six-year, $60 million contract extension during the 2010 offseason. He has remained even-keeled in spite of the bonus situation.

"It's really out of my hands," he said. "I've done everything that I can do, so now you wait for the ruling and see what happens. None of us have a crystal ball to see how it all will play out."

In the meantime, Ferguson has done what he typically does during the offseason -- work out and stay in touch with his teammates.

"Obviously it's more fun having my teammates there and having all that camaraderie, but individual workouts are not a loss," Ferguson said. "I've had to work by myself at combines before and forced myself to work out alone all the way back to high school. You have to be self-motivated."
