Practice squad players don’t make typical NFL salaries (or minimums). While it’s more than your average first-year college graduate, the pay is only for the season.That is what I see. With his athletic ability, I figure he might make a 53 man roster for a season or 2 and then head up a practice squad for several years. If that scenario plays out, it could set him up to have a pretty good life w/o having to grind like the rest of us in the real world.
