Taylor is probably an amazing guy, but he's not NFL or XFL caliber. Not by a long shot. He was horrible in the Senior Bowl and yesterday, missed half a dozen wide open recievers. Finished the day 16-of-27 for 154 yards and 2 INTs. Most of his yards were on catch and runs, where the WR broke a tackle after a 5 yard pass.
A memo sent from the XFL to agents explained the details of how they'd be paid. Players will be paid on a bi-weekly basis with a base paycheck of $2,080. If they are active for a game they will receive a bonus (activation fee) of $1,685. If their team wins they get an extra bonus of $2,222.
According to the memo sent by the league to agents it says "a player may earn up to $4,947 per game week." That's taking into account half of the base paycheck ($1,040), the activation fee and the victory bonus.
Contracts for players in the XFL this season start from Dec. 3, 2019 to May 31, 2020 if they remain in the league for the full season.
Most players in the XFL will be earning roughly the same salary. The main difference is that top quarterbacks are eligible to make more. The new football league has placed on emphasis on quarterback play as commissioner Oliver Luck believes that's the key to having a good product on the field.
According to Yahoo Sports' sources, the top quarterbacks will earn $495,000. Those salaries are likely held for bigger name quarterbacks such as Landry Jones, Cardale Jones and Josh Johnson (potentially among others).
