From there, Dale went on to join several NFL practice squads — including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers.
Believe it or not, playing on the practice squad is a lot more lucrative than most people realize. One sports publication reports that players can make $8,400 per week or $142,800 for 17 weeks. However, if you’re a veteran player with over two years of experience, you can take home $12,000 per week or $204,000 for 17 weeks.
