Does anyone know where to find a NFL salary standard distribution or table? I'm working on a research project to find out what BCS programs would look like under the NFL's CBA. I have most of the necessary data, including the median salary. However, I'd like to have the standard deviation and/or table to get a sense how how much a 5 star, transfer, or grad transfer could command on the open market.
Additional notes (constructive feedback is always useful):
This is a what if, not a should be
Bullet points: including some of the primary factors.
- Salary caps by conference

- 95% conference cap avg for 10 year period
- 15.74% of total conference revenue for player benefits.
-long-term medical coverage, scholarships, worker's comp, unemployment etc.
- Using two teams for each P5 and G5 conference plus ND
- revenue and expense reports/ breakdown
--apparel contracts (cash and apparel from company are separate categories)
-- ticket sales, conferenece payouts, media, licensing/ branding/royalties, donations etc
