Is NIL money getting out of hand? Some may say yes, but shoot these college players are cashing in. Arch Manning the nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning and the back-up quarterback to Quinn Ewers at Texas is making more money in NIL than the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback Brock Purdy.
You read that right, 3.2 million in NIL money and has never even started a game. While Purdy is one of the odds favorites to win the MVP in the NFL. Purdy is set to make 870k dollars this year.
The NFL is going to run into a problem. They make billions off the game and the salary cap is too small. The NFL teams and players are not doing it right. Their Union is not doing enough for them. The Dodgers in the MLB signed three players this week and spent 1.1 billion dollars on three players contracts. The NFL is the most watched sport, they should be getting paid a lot more money. This stat is absolutely crazy.
Do you agree?
