EA Sports has finally come up with a number to pay the football players they plan on featuring in the game.

According to reports, 11,000 football players will be paid 600 dollars each for NIL rights.

Jason Wilson of Sports Business Journal claims EA Sports is offering $600 to 11,000 college football players for their name, image, and likeness rights in the upcoming return of its college football video game. They also will get a free copy of the game for their preferred platform. That is a pretty hefty bill for EA Sports to pay.

EA plans “ambassador” offers to other players in the future if some of the players refuse the 600-dollar NIL deal.

College Football Players Association dogged the offer.

“The news here is that this is the first group licensing deal in sports business history to not include royalties,” the group said, via FrontOfficeSports.com. “CFB players get a video game instead of royalties. The athletes of the second most popular sport in America are being treated like children. Video games instead of [cash].”

Do you feel it is worth it for the players?
