As a condition of approving all three franchise moves in the last 15 months, the NFL individually assessed relocation fees that will each be doled out to 31 other franchises. Those fees, according to various reports, total anywhere from $1.43 billion to $1.68 billion, or a distribution of approximately $46 million to $54 million per team.
Those fees are not directly new revenue and won't be shared with players.
The CBA specifically excludes these fees from the revenues used to determine the league’s salary cap.
Sports Illustrated’s Jack Dickey wrote back in January: “An observer from outside the sports world could reasonably conclude that the NFL is in actuality a trade group for land barons.”
