How NFL stores are making food affordable for players
Sports retailers like Walmart and Costco are making it easier for players to buy food at their local stores.
The trend is expected to continue with the NFL’s new contract.
The NFL has set up shop in the nation’s biggest malls, such as New York City’s Union Square, to help players buy groceries and other supplies.
The NFL is offering players free groceries at the team stores, as well as food at the NFL Store at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., and the Super Bowl in Houston, Texas.
The stores also sell food to the general public.
The league’s stores are among the largest in the country, with more than 5,000 outlets.
The teams have stores at the stadiums in St. Louis and Indianapolis.
The new contract will pay players a total of $7.3 million over four years.
The salary cap will be $125 million, and teams are allowed to spend up to $150 million on players.
The contracts will pay $2.5 million for each year of the contract, with a $10 million signing bonus.
Players who play for teams with a cap of more than $125,000 will receive $2 million in incentives, and players who don’t make the cut but earn the salary cap amount will receive a signing bonus of $100,000.
The contracts come on the heels of an agreement in January between the NFL and the National Football League Players Association that included an increase in the amount of guaranteed money that players receive.
The minimum contract, which has not been finalized, would be worth $1.6 million per year, up from the current $1,700 per game.
The deal would pay players $1 million in the first two years, $2,000 in the third, $4,000 each year thereafter and $5,000 a year after that.
The deal would include $3 million in escalators for players who hit the market, up to a total $5.5.
The union’s contract includes $2 billion in guarantees for the players and a guaranteed minimum of $75 million, according to the union’s website.
The collective bargaining agreement between the players’ union and the NFL was approved by the players last July.
