How Much Salary Is Kyle Trask Going To Receive With Tampa Bay Buccaneers? What Is His Net Worth?
Buccaneers is yet to pick Trask's contract but in the event they do, his second-round selection is very likely going to land him some high-income salaries for the next four or five years. Despite not being as attractive as the first pick's deal, the players drafted on the second round are still entitled to seven figures with a guaranteed signing bonus in the region of $3-4million. For what it's worth, Trask could already be a rookie worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
If he doesn't make the roster, he will still receive the NFL base salary of $660k. That insinuates in the aftermath of four to five years, he will have received over $2 million or so from his salaries alone. Of course, these figures could drastically change if he exceeds the expectations or fails to meet the NFL standard.
There are also numerous bonuses, such as workout stipends, preseason practice squad, and game-wise performance bonuses amongst others to consider. To put into perspective, if he signs a contract close to $10million (a standard contract issued to second-round draftees), with a signing bonus close to $3million, his salary will be around $2 million a year.
