Why NFLers have less disposable income than ever
NFL players earn an average of $1.6 million annually on average, according to a report published Tuesday.
A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that it was $2 million per year.
NFL players earn a minimum of $3.1 million per season, and the average NFL salary for the 2020 season is $3 million, according the report.
The median NFL salary in 2020 is $2.4 million, the same as it was in 2017, according ESPN.
ESPN also said that the average salary of an NFL player in 2019 was $8.7 million.
Players are allowed to take up to 20 days off a year, and those days are paid by the team, not the player.
According to the report, there are more than 8,500 NFL players, and more than 1,400 of them earn more than $1 million a year.
