Arizona Cardinals union representative Jay Feely said today on “Pro Football Talk Live” on NBCSports.com that NFL players have never made more money.
“We have record revenue, we have record TV ratings, we have record worth of franchises and players have never made more money,” Feely said. “It is inherent on both sides to find a way to get a deal done.”
As Commissioner Goodell has stated, the goal is a fair agreement that works for the teams, players, and fans.
NFL player costs in 2009 were $4.5 billion. NFL players have doubled their compensation in the past 10 years, and the average player salary is about $2 million.
