Beckham: NFL players should make more money

Odell Beckham Jr. thinks the league should raise the salaries for NFL players across the board since one-hit could put a halt to a promising career.

It’s not exactly top secret information that American football players have the worst contract situations in major professional sports. They have extremely dangerous jobs that lead to very short careers. Every Sunday they risk life and limb to get the ball across that goal line, and yet the NFL’s players are underpaid compared to their counterparts on the baseball field and basketball court.

That doesn’t seem right when you consider how the NFL dominates the American sports landscape from September to February and at many spots in between.

Giants second-year player Odell Beckham Jr. is one who could stand to make a lot of money in the NFL, especially when you consider he was one of the best wide receivers in the league during his rookie season. However, even the league’s top players don’t have fully guaranteed contacts and put a lot on the line every time they take the field.

“I think that we should make more money, personally,” Beckham told the Huffington Post, “I understand that basketball plays 80-something games, baseball plays this many games, soccer plays that many games, but this is a sport where there's more injuries. There's more collisions. It's not even a full-contact sport; I would call it a full-collision sport. You have people running who can run 20 miles per hour and they're running downhill to hit you, and you're running 18 miles per hour. That's a car wreck. It's just the career is shorter. There's injuries that you have after you leave the game, brain injuries, whatever it is, nerve injuries.”

In a world where common sense was king, NFL players would be paid more than any other athletes, as everything Beckham said about the dangers of the sport is correct. However, we live in a world run by economics and contracts, and those two things will keep the average NFL players from making as much as the average NBA or MLB player.

First of all, owners can only charge so much for season tickets, even when you put personal seat licenses into the equation. With a 10-game home slate (including preseason games), that limits the amount of revenue teams can make.

More importantly, the players who don’t play quarterback are expendable. As long as the Patriots have Tom Brady and the Packers have Aaron Rodgers, those teams know that they can fill other holes with low-cost players via the Draft and free agency. Only the wide receivers, pass rushers, and cornerbacks of the highest caliber even come close to making as much money as middle-tier quarterbacks.

There’s also the collective bargaining agreement to consider. No one can step in and wave a magic wand to give the players better contracts. The sort of money they make has already been negotiated, and when the agreement expires? The owners have shown they are willing to lock the players out and cut off their money supply just to avoid favoring them in the CBA.

So while Beckham may be right about the NFL salary situation, it’s going to take more than a little wishing and hoping to accomplish any sort of change.
