Jerry Fahrni: “Median household income in 2009 in the US was approximately $50K. Median NFL player salary is approximately $770,000. That means the average person in the US has to work about 15 years to earn that. Think about that for minute. Now do the math on these: Cowboys signed Tyson Smith to a four-year, $12.5 million deal which is entirely guaranteed. Bengals signed A.J. Green to a four-year, $19.6 million deal, all of which is also guaranteed. Denver signed Von Miller to a four-year, $21-million deal. The players are complaining that these contracts are â€œlowâ€. Chew on that for a while.”
Yes, I’d ride the pine for $770,000 a year.
