  1. Interesting that ‘big money’ guarantee is a relative term – that is a lot of money for the average Joe Six-pack or the average undrafted free agent, but the money is nowhere near the millionaire income that a lot of fans perceive all pro players receive.

  2. Interesting definition of “big money.” It’s peanuts in the pro sports world.

    The 2021 NFL minimum salary is $660k if they make the roster.
