The NFL Wants YOU!
If You Even Look Like A Quarterback
Are you stuck in a low-paying, dead-end job? Do you want a career in which you can make a boatload of money regardless of how badly you perform? Then, you should consider becoming an NFL quarterback!
You say you can’t throw very well and can hardly run? Neither could Peyton Manning in his final season, yet he still made $15 million―make that $19 million with incentives.
You say you injure easily and wouldn’t be able to play very much; plus, you throw tantrums when your team drafts a quarterback? Sounds like Sam Bradford of the Rams/Eagles/Vikings, who has a contract that pays him a guaranteed $22 million over two years and potentially as much as $35 million.
You say you have some natural talent but never accomplished anything significant, and you have a lousy attitude? That describes Jay Cutler of the Chicago Bears, who has a contract that pays a guaranteed $54 million over seven years and could pay as much as $126 million.
You can see what’s going on here. Some NFL teams are so desperate for a half-decent quarterback that they will hire and overpay anyone who just looks the part. And what a sweet gig it is! You get money, fame and status, and you don’t even have to be good at your job.
