Inside an NFL Player Representation Agreement

Ever wonder what an NFL Agent’s contract looks like?  Wonder no more.  Check out a standard representation agreement between player and agent right here ( pdf | jpg ).

The most surprising fact from surveying the agreement is that agents are limited to earning 3% of their client’s compensation per season.

For example, if an agent is representing a player making the rookie minimum ($340,000 scheduled for 2011) the most he/she could make per season is $10,200.  So if my math is correct, it’s probably better to represent Peyton Manning.  Still, representing a whole bunch of third-stringers will earn a nice paycheck as well.

Just for kicks and giggles, we’re also posting standard player contracts from the United Football League and Indoor Football League.  Enjoy.
