NFL players are expected to make a total of $1.3 million in 2016, according to NFLPA CEO DeMaurice Smith.
However, the players are also expected to get a huge raise of $300,000 in the 2016 season, according the latest NFLPA salary report.
That’s the first time the NFLPA has made the salary figures public.
The league released the figures last month, and it showed the average salary for the entire league is now $3.3M per season.
But the NFL Players Association released a report this week that found that the average NFL player has a salary of $2.7M in 2016.
The NFLPA is now calling for the league to pay all NFL players the same amount they make now.
The minimum wage, which currently stands at $7.25 per hour, was raised to $9 per hour in March.
But NFL players will have to earn an average of $3,400 a year if they want to be eligible for overtime pay, which is set to start in January.
The union says that’s $2,400 more than the $1,800 minimum wage players are currently making.
The $1 billion bail project is also coming up for approval in Congress, which could lead to another round of raises for the players.
The NFLPA also plans to launch a nationwide petition campaign this summer, which the union hopes will bring attention to the issue.
