draftees and $ value
 
Just curious as to the dollar amount the 7 of 8 draftees and FA's would probably put in their pockets say between now and next superbowl. I don't have a clue what the going rate of pay is.

Here's a good site with some projections for Draft picks.

This being just their NFL contracts. Doesn't take into account endorsements.

But it is small compared to what they used to get such as Sam Bradford.
"On July 30, 2010, Bradford signed a six-year, $78 million deal, which has $50 million of guarantees and has a maximum value of $86 million making it the largest contract ever for an NFL rookie."

This was before they changed it, isn't it?

Yea I think that was the last draft before the new CBA with the rookie pay scale.

Yes it was.
The year before that Matt Stafford signed a ridiculous deal too.

What percentage does the player's agent get and is their cut on just the signing bonus or the total contract?

The NFL limits agents to a 3% cut of players playing contract. They usually get a bigger portion of endorsements IIRC 15%

Looks like Sammy needs to thank Bruce for the huge payday

Bruce better watch that money. $800k in San Fran ain't much. A modest apartment there will run you $800k. I hope he fights the urge to blow it all.

I heard on the radio today that the undrafted FA's who are signed split like 80k in signing bonuses among all those signed by a particular team. The more desirable a FA, the higher percentage of that 80K a team may give them to sign. Once they are signed, they get a per diem (~200/day) during rookie mini-camps etc as they fight for a spot on the 53 man roster or the practice squad. If they make the 53 man roster, they are guranteed the rookie minimum salary of like 420K split over 17 games and if they are on the practice squad, they get like ~110K split over 17 games.

It is a tough road for the undrafted free agents and obviously, most of them will not get rich in the NFL...at least no time soon.

I know the value Clowney has to the Texans is different than the value Shaw has to the Browns but relative to their value to our wins and losses last year, the difference is amazing. I guess Clowney will pay way more in taxes in a month than Shaw makes this year.

The second contract's value is what really matters.

So everybody that's not homeless in San Francisco is basically a millionaire is what you're saying?

Speaking of money. Marqise Lee could make money (along with his contract) from the insurance policy he took out before this year.
