NFL Salaries 2013

As the most popular sport in the United States, it is no surprise that NFL players make massive amounts of money. Football is interesting in that all of the contracts are not guaranteed like they are in the NBA or MLB. This is why you see players sometimes take less money overall with a bigger chunk being guaranteed. In the NFL draft it is also a huge deal when they talk about the guaranteed portion of a contract because many rookies never end up getting the full amount of their contracts due to injury or lack or productivity. Below are a list of salaries for the NFL.
