Fifth-Year Option Numbers Revealed

Teams have started to officially exercise 2015 options on players who are in the final year of their rookie contracts but the salaries for many of the eligible players has been a mystery, until now. Albert Breer of NFL Network (Twitter links) has the numbers on every position for players that were drafted between No. 11-32 in 2011.

It’ll be $9.686MM for quarterbacks, $5.211MM for running backs, $6.776MM for wide receivers, $3.913MM for tight ends, and $7.438MM for offensive linemen. On the other side of the ball, it’ll be $5.477MM for defensive tackles, $7.038MM for linebackers, and $4.67MM for safeties. As previously reported, defensive ends will get $6.969MM and cornerbacks will get $6.898MM. Of course, for top ten picks, their option numbers match the transition tag salaries for 2014.
