The deal is worth up to $150 million ($30 million annually) only if Allen has 17.5 or more sacks each year and if he reaches the Pro Bowl or is named a first-team All-Pro in each season.

It's very similar to the contract the Giants gave pass rusher Brian Burns. The base APY narrowly exceeds Burns, at $28.2 million. However, his incentives are a bit higher at $1.8 million per year — and he gets there simply by getting 12.5 sacks, making the Pro Bowl, or being named an All-Pro.
