    Do they get the $150k regardless?

    If i was on the outer about to get cut, id consider that pay for doing nothing!

    How many of these opt out guys do you think will just end up retiring? I feel we’ll see a number of them just decide to hang it up “for health” like we saw a few years back.

    why would they retire if they can opt out and get paid 150k for doing nothing?

    Bc they can’t opt out every year AND I just see some of them enjoying not going thru the grind. I may be way off tho. Time will tell

    UDFA's don't get anything. I don't know about UFA's though.

    I think if you're on a roster currently you do get the $150k or $300k if you're a high risk person.

    This. A bunch of urfa players would make less than the 150. They wouldn't give them free money

    Not undrafted free agents. Or pure walk on players not that the latter is very common. They can be paid anything as far as I can tell. Some get as little as 10k signing bonus and 50k salary and as much I think this year as 50k signing and 300k salary.

    Idk if they have to be paid league min if they make the team but I know those guys and practice squad players don't have the same min salary.

    I looked it up. Udfa players can sign for anything they agree to but if they make the team they make the 610k min. Practice squad players make 8k a week. So just under 150k a year.

    I read somewhere the 150k is a loan from next years salary. Basically it pushes the current years salary back a year
