As you know, Marshall shattered the franchise record for most receptions, racking up 109. Based on his contract, which averages $8.7 million per year (12th among wide receivers), it breaks down to $79,500 per catch. That might sound like a lot of cash, but it's actually one of the lowest rates in the NFL.
The league average for wide receivers was $154,000 per reception, with 35 receivers making more than $200,000 per catch last season, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Among the 25 receivers with a contract that averages at least $5 million per year, the top bargain was Antonio Brown.
Who were the biggest non-bargains? The Colts' T.Y. Hilton made $188,000 per catch and Vincent Jackson pulled in $337,000 per grab. The most obscene number came from the Dwayne Bowe, who was paid $1.25 million for each of his five catches.
Which explains why he's currently unemployed.
