Troy had a pretty interesting question regarding practice squad elevations this week where he wondered just how much teams are actually spending on elevations since this is a new thing teams will have to budget for in the future. Since we track standard elevations (Covid elevations hopefully will just be a one year deal) we can run through each team and see how much they have spent over the players practice squad salary this year.

Team | Elevation Salary |

49ers | $684,035 |

Seahawks | $593,565 |

Bills | $547,600 |

Cowboys | $545,188 |

Eagles | $544,929 |

Broncos | $544,188 |

Jets | $542,153 |

Jaguars | $524,894 |

Bengals | $518,129 |

Football Team | $518,129 |

Ravens | $499,988 |

Titans | $493,824 |

Patriots | $489,765 |

Giants | $467,941 |

Cardinals | $461,894 |

Saints | $459,518 |

Raiders | $448,412 |

Packers | $436,965 |

Chargers | $434,776 |

Vikings | $404,894 |

Lions | $397,318 |

Bears | $355,741 |

Buccaneers | $321,835 |

Panthers | $300,576 |

Chiefs | $288,541 |

Texans | $268,859 |

Falcons | $257,435 |

Steelers | $254,000 |

Colts | $253,835 |

Browns | $233,553 |

Dolphins | $212,082 |

Rams | $117,576 |

Prorating for the season it would seem that teams should set aside somewhere between $700,000 and $750,000 in elevation salary. Also in looking at the numbers the current split between elevations for those making $204K vs $142.8K is about 110 to 325 this year.

Here are the players who have been elevated so far this year.
