What is the average salary of a football player?

I am trying to convince my son that not everyone in football makes a million dollars a year.


Answer by  pieface (273)

Salary ranges from $488,640 on the St. Louis Rams to $1.3 million for the San Fransisco 49ers. The lowest paid players get paid around $310,000.

Well yeah that is true not every player makes a million dollars a year only the really big ones do. The average ones make about 100 to 200 k per year but honestly it just depends on how good you are and how much your contract has been signed for.

IT really depends where you are. Let's assume this is american football. Most professional football players earn a median sallary of 60-100K USD, just about the same as programmers.

In 2009, it was $720,000. Of course, this is an average. Some players make well over a million while others make much less.

Good luck. The average NFL salary is about $1.5 million while the median salary (the salary in the middle of the scale) is $770,000.

Your son would be correct if they're referring to the NFL. NFL players make an average of 1. 4 million dollars a year. Lesser League players make about 200k a year.
