Winning the Super Bowl brings a lot of spoils to NFL players, which explains why Super Bowl celebrations are almost as big as the game itself. For one thing, winning is a legacy item. The average NFL player’s career is just a shade over three years, and most players never hold the Lombardi Trophy in such a short time. For another, there’s a nice financial payout—$130,000 for members of the winning team this past season, and $65,000 for the losing team.
