Practice Squad Elevation Tracker: Week 11

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.

TeamElevation 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.
