In case you didn’t get the memo, the NFL is a business.
The NFL is the most profitable professional sports league in the world and it’s only getting more profitable.
This year alone, the league’s revenues reached $3.5 billion.
In terms of revenue, the average NFL player makes about $3,500 a year, and in some cases more.
As for how the NFL earns that money, a team has to pay its players.
They can either pay for the salary cap, which covers players salaries in the league, or they can pay for injury insurance, which helps cover players medical bills.
To do this, the team either has to either pay the player, or make a profit.
If they pay the players, the player has to go into the NFL and earn the money to cover the player’s medical bills, but if they don’t pay the money, they have to lose the player and the money they paid to them.
In 2016, the Steelers had to pay $9.2 million to linebacker Artie Burns after he suffered a season-ending ACL tear.
The Steelers lost him for the season, but the league lost a $6.9 million profit on the deal, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
The Cowboys and Eagles both made a similar mistake when they had to give $1.8 million to tight end Zach Ertz after he broke his leg in Week 3 of the 2016 season.
They lost Ertz for the year, but were still profitable.
The Jaguars had to let quarterback Blake Bortles walk in free agency, but their profit on his contract was $1 million.
The Broncos also had to cut wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who they had signed to a three-year, $16 million deal.
The 49ers had to lose wide receiver Brandon Lloyd to injury in 2017, but made a profit on him after they cut him.
The Raiders also had injuries to wide receivers Andre Holmes and Reggie Nelson.
The Panthers also lost wide receiver Josh Norman to injury, but it was still a profitable move.
The Patriots lost wideout Rob Gronkowski to an Achilles injury, while they were still a viable team for the NFL, but lost out on a $9 million loss on their deal.
Even the Panthers lost receiver Corey Brown, who was expected to be the team’s No. 1 wideout in 2017.
The Bengals also lost defensive tackle Anthony Collins to a torn ACL in 2017 but made $1,500,000 on the injury.
The Colts lost tight end Delanie Walker to an ankle injury, and were profitable on the move, but they had a $5.8-million loss on the contract.
The Redskins were profitable for the first time since the 2007 season, after they signed veteran wideout Jamison Crowder to a one-year deal worth $8 million.
They made $6 million on the five-year contract.
All of those deals are just the latest examples of how the league is making money on its players, but players like Crowder, Walker, and Baker are proving that it’s still a business and that players can make money on their own.
In 2017, the Redskins signed wide receiver DeSean Jackson to a four-year $48 million deal, but he was cut for salary cap reasons.
He made $4.6 million this season on the $3 million he was due.
The Chiefs signed quarterback Patrick Mahomes to a five-season $40 million deal in 2018.
He was cut after he signed the deal because he wasn’t profitable on his deal.
He only made $2.9 in 2017 on the one-million-dollar deal he signed.
The Falcons also had a huge turnover on their 2018 contract of wide receiver Julio Jones, but still made $10.3 million on his $15 million deal for 2018.
The Rams also made a fortune on the quarterback situation in 2018, signing veteran starter Sam Bradford to a $55 million deal that was the highest-paid player in NFL history at the time.
Bradford signed the four- and five- year deals that are the norm in the modern NFL, and it worked.
Bradford went on to be named the MVP of the NFL in 2019, and he made $25.9 mil on the six-year contracts he signed after the season.
All told, Bradford signed eight different contracts worth $100 million or more, and earned the most money from each deal for the 2018 season.
The Dolphins signed quarterback Ryan Tannehill to a two-year (and $21 million) contract extension worth $40.6 mil this offseason.
He went on the franchise tag this offseason, but signed a two year extension worth up to $18 million this past season.
Tannehills contract was the third-highest in the entire league, and was the fifth highest of any quarterback in 2017 and 2018.
Tannghill had a career year last year, completing 66.6 percent of his passes and throwing for 3,890 yards with 36
