Why did this NFL player make $20,000 per game?
NFL player is making $20 million per year for the rest of his career, but a new survey found he’s making about $20 an hour.
The study by research firm SuperData surveyed about 200 people across the country.
SuperData CEO and founder John Bailie told CBS News that a typical NFL player makes about $2.2 million per season, which he said is more than most players who have played for their teams.
Superdata surveyed 200 people on average, and it had an average of about 50 responses.
The average salary for a full-time NFL player in 2018 is $21.1 million.
According to Bailes research, the median salary is $15.7 million.
It’s the highest it has been in over a decade.
Super Data has also published an interactive tool called NFL Salary Calculator.
Bailies study looked at the average salary and the median yearly income for each position for each team and then calculated how much the players made per year.
Bails research also looked at NFL salaries in 2017 and 2018.
In 2018, there were 13 positions that were made up of at least five players, and those were the top-paying positions, with $23.8 million in salary earned per player.
The next-highest salary in 2018 was cornerback ($11.3 million), followed by running back ($11 million) and wide receiver ($10.6 million).
There were also a few position players that were paid a little less than the median player, like quarterback ($5.7) and defensive end ($4.8).
There are about 2.5 million NFL players, so Bailys study found that the average NFL player made about $16.4 million a year.
The median NFL player earned about $9 million per player last year, and about $10.2 for every full-season NFL player.
