    sorry if this is the wrong board to ask, but a coworker and i were just discussing and trying to figure out how NFL players get paid. what i mean is, do they recieve 16 paychecks a year one for each game, thus deviding their salary 16 times, or do they get paid throughout the year? nothing really important, just curious. thanks for ur help in advance.

    I think this is how it works,

    The players get a base salary and then a prorated portion of their signing bonus calculated into 20 paychecks for each weekly pay period for however long their contract is. The 20 games is broken down to,16 for regular season games and 4 for preseason games.

    I think when they get their roster bonus, that is a one time check along with anything extra like incentives they reach

    They get 16 "GameChecks" paid out during the season. They are not paid in the offseason from their teams. Most players however supplement this by doing endorsement deals. That why you always hear when someone gets a stiff penalty they are fined "Gamechecks" hope this helps

    According the Amended CBA for 2006
    The NFL regular season is 17 weeks long (16 games and one bye week), so if a player decides to be paid on a weekly basis, he receives 1/17th of his pay each week.

    i used to have some property where ERIC WILLHELM'S [qb for oregon ducks and
    short time bengals] mom and brother lived.

    when he went to cincy, he had all his game checks sent home to his mom
    and she took care of his finances.

    his brother showed me one of his game checks.

    i about pooped my pants with all the numbers on it!!!!

    he sucked though and the rest is nfl history. maybe it's karma
    for snubbing me on the autographed NFL ball when he had a huge
    box of about 150 of them at his moms apartment. it was a flat,
    cold NO!!!!

    so i evicted his mom. [just kidddin']

    I did a loan for a coach on the Bronco's and his pay was by weekly. The part that sucks is say Miami has low to no state tax in there state. That works for games in Miami, but according to his paystub when I reviewed it road games since it was work done in New York lets say that income was taxed by the state of NY. It was crazy with all the different state taxes being paid out depending on where they played.

    Every state is different... Like if you live in New York but work in New Jersey you still have to pay New York income tax, but the income tax you paid in NY becomes a credit on your New Jersey tax return... There is no state income tax in FL, but you still have to pay the income tax when you go play road games outside of the state. If you pay income tax in those states, I am pretty sure it becomes a deduction on your FL return
