How much money does an undrafted free agent in the NFL typically sign for?

Answer

Undrafted free agents in the NFL typically sign for the contract minimum, which varies by year. In 2009, this minimum amount was $310,000. In 2011 through 2014, it went up to $460,000.

Agents who represent NFL players say that finding jobs for undrafted free agents is one of the most difficult aspects of their job. Teams generally do not give out information about their budget or how many position players they plan to sign. They often ask agents to make quick decisions on an offer. Many undrafted free agents are signed by teams every year, and most end up on practice squads.
