FOX Sports’ Mike Klis reports that players can now expect to see a significant increase in their wages as they prepare for the NFL draft.
According to NFL Players Association research, average NFL players’ paychecks have increased by an average of 7.2 percent between 2013 and 2018.
However, the pay raises for those making the most money have increased only 4.3 percent, according to the NFLPA.
According in the NFL, players who are making more than $1 million annually receive an average salary of $1,724, while those making less than $500,000 annually receive a salary of just $818.
That’s an 8.6 percent increase.
While this increase is substantial, it’s not a complete increase.
Players who make between $1 and $3.7 million a year, receive a pay raise of 1.3 times that of the next highest paid player, with a salary increase of 8.5 percent.
The NFLPA has been tracking players’ salary for years, and the results have been very encouraging.
The average NFL player now earns $7,400 per year.
In 2018, the average NFL salary was $7.722 million.
The biggest increase has come for quarterbacks, where they have seen an average wage increase of 6.5 times.
This year, quarterbacks earned an average $9,965, with the largest increase at 10.2 times the average salary.
In 2019, the median NFL salary is $11,835, which is up by 9.9 percent.
However that still leaves the top spot for wide receivers at the moment.
In 2020, the wide receiver wage was $8,851, which was the highest paid of any position.
In 2021, the highest-paid wide receiver was Antonio Brown at $13,988.
With the NFL Draft in the rearview mirror, this is an important time for NFL players.
Players have been paying attention to the financial impact of the draft, and they’re now ready to make a huge jump.
With NFL salaries at a record high, players can expect to make more than ever in the coming years.
