This question comes up often and especially when certain players are going to the CFL from other leagues or free agency or in the CFL looking to the NFL.
Check out this interesting story about a player named Tori Gurley as also talks about minimum salaries in the NFL.[url=http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Better-career-move-Packers-practice-squad-or-Vi?urn=nfl-wp14023]http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdo ... fl-wp14023[/url]
Gurley has been bouncing around practice squads after cuts and has yet to make a team. Gurley, by my calculations, is merely one of a rotating pool of approximately 450 players in North America in pro football limbo who are still vying for the NFL dream often at even higher odds than many a new free agent out of college:[url=http://forums.cfl.ca/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=67749]viewtopic.php?f=15&t=67749[/url]
A small few in this pool qualify to be CFL material as well.
I wrote Gurley off recently, but to be fair he was the last guy on my list of dark horses before the draft anyway:[url=http://forums.cfl.ca/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=65561]viewtopic.php?f=15&t=65561[/url]
And now go figure as Gurley trains with the best? I don't blame him at all, for it truly is a once-in-lifetime opportunity. If the Vikings came knocking, he knows already so will others next season.
