NFL’s Most Valuable Player Makes Less Than $1 Million a Year

From a Wall Street Journal story by Andrew Beaton headlined “The NFL’s Most Valuable Players Makes Less Than $1 Million”:

Brock Purdy is a contender to win Most Valuable Player and the quarterback of the Super Bowl favorite San Francisco 49ers. But what makes him so outrageously valuable isn’t just that he excels at the most important position in football for a team expected to vie for the Lombardi Trophy.

Top quarterbacks command contracts worth over $50 million annually. Purdy gets paid less than a million. There isn’t another player who contributes so much and gets paid so little.
