Bleacher News The National Football League is having a rough year, but that hasn’t stopped the NFLPA from trying to make sure it’s not paying out big bucks.
The NFLPA has filed a lawsuit against six NFL teams, claiming that the teams have violated antitrust laws by paying players and employees to live off the grid.
The teams are among the top 10 earners for football players, earning a combined $10.7 million in 2013, according to Forbes.
The players are also the ones paying for the players housing and meals.
The lawsuit alleges that the players are receiving money not only from the league but from other teams, including the teams that have the most teams, like the Arizona Cardinals, the Carolina Panthers, the Miami Dolphins, the Oakland Raiders, the San Diego Chargers, and the Tennessee Titans.
The teams pay their players to live in the gridlock conditions, which is the gridlocked portion of the country that is in the path of the storm, the suit said.
According to Forbes, the players pay for the team’s housing and food, as well as all expenses associated with the team, such as rent, food, travel, and other expenses.
According to Forbes’ research, the average NFL salary is about $30,000 a year.
According a 2013 study by Forbes, NFL players are the highest-paid in the world, earning an average of $7 million annually.
