Practice squad players have a customary weekly salary of $6,300, though teams have license to pay more than those practice-squad salaries." My note - this increase took place with 8 weeks left in the regular season. Barker earned $6,300 a week for seven weeks while on the practice squad and will earn $10,000 a week for 8 weeks.
