Not for undrafted rookies and practice squad players.  If you think that an NFL roster has 90 players on it to begin with, and then gets gradually cut down to 53, a lot of those players won't be on big money I'd guess.  The average of the 53 will be a fair bit higher than the average of the 90.

I think to be considered an NFL player you have to be at least eligible to play a game in the NFL, which those 37 players who get cut aren't. If they make a 53 man roster then they earn the minimum, which is above the average that was quoted.

I wonder if the pre-season games count perhaps?  That might explain it?

I suppose so yeah, they are all played pre-cutdowns so that could be the discrepancy.

The figures could simply be wrong but it seems an odd mistake to make as that kind of information is readily available over there I think?  I know that undrafted players get much lower amounts as signing bonuses, I'm sure I've seen $10,000 as a figure for one player before, and I got the impression that most of them weren't significantly higher than that.

Read an article where it mentioned UDFAs on the Patriots in...2019 I believe it was, and it said their lowest was $14k and their highest was $115k

Really all depends on how many teams are bidding for their services I suppose.

I know the Steelers signed a UFA with a $25,000 signing bonus this offseason and it was the highest they have ever given out to a UFA. That was alongside a 3 year $2.5m contract though, but obviously only the $25,000 is guaranteed.

Man people are going to be annoyed when they log on to hundreds of posts, only to find out they're all about a different unrelated sport.

Darius Vassell The then Aston Villa striker missed several games after he drilled through his toe nail with a home power drill thinking it would relieve the pressure on a swollen toe. The attempt at DIY surgery succeeded only in giving the toe an infection which required medical attention.

Didn't a footballer break their foot trying to reach a remote control while in bed, or something equally ridiculous? It might even have been a metatarsal, IIRC.

    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
    • I don’t think there is anything in particular going on. My guess is that he is just completely crocked and will not play for us ever
