Todd Gurley became the latest in a long line of NFL players to bemoan how much less they make than NBA stars when he told the Los Angeles Times in Give the Rams credit. The talks between VP of football and business administration Tony Pastoors and Gurley ’s agent, Ari Nissim, were clean

Todd Gurley said the 0 million contracts NBA players sign are "insane," compared to the NFL . Gurley had previously told TMZ that for NFL players to get guaranteed contracts , players would have to hold out in a lockout. He laughed about the comment to Klein but confirmed he would like more

Todd Gurley continues to bemoan disparity between NFL, NBA contracts© Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Todd Gurley has again expressed his displeasure over the significant disparity between the kind of contracts enjoyed by NBA players and the deals with which NFL players are oftentimes saddled.

The NBA offseason has been a wild one, with massive amounts of guaranteed money being handed to the league’s biggest-name players.

Meanwhile, in the NFL, even the biggest superstars like Gurley, while netting considerable money in contracts, do not end up seeing such staggering numbers — nor security, for that matter — that their NBA counterparts net in their deals.

“It’s crazy,” Gurley recently told Bleacher Report, as transcribed by the New York Post. “I led the league in touchdowns the last two years and I just seen somebody get $80 million and I couldn’t even pronounce their name.”

Jake Arrieta threatens Todd Frazier after altercation: ‘I’ll put a dent in his skull’ If there’s one thing that we learned from Saturday’s Philadelphia Phillies-New York Mets game, it’s that Jake Arrieta wants Todd Frazier’s fade. The two players had a dust-up during the fifth inning of the contest when Arrieta plunked Frazier with a changeup. The third baseman responded by chirping at Arrieta and was ejected as a result.

Todd Gurley 's knee may never be the same, but the Rams are stuck paying him big money for at least three years. When the Rams inked Todd Gurley to a long-term extension last July, NFL super agent Lee Steinberg penned a piece for Forbes analyzing the deal.

Todd Gurley : NFL players are 'mad' about NBA contracts . NBA players are making a lot of guaranteed money, and their NFL counterparts are taking notice.

When Bleacher Report radio host Adam Lefkoe brought up how Tobias Harris just signed a five-year, $180 million deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, Gurley was left stumped, though he harbors no ill will toward any NBA player who can land such a contract.

“Tobias Harris was the first guy I seen, I was like, ‘Hold on, who is this?’” Gurley said. “I started looking at his game, I’m like, ‘Actually, he’s all right.’ He got [$64 million] the last time but then he just re-upped.

“Hey, I ain’t mad at them, man. They’re doing their thing. All I know is if I was in high school right now, and I was 6-5, I’d be in the gym every day.”

A not uncommon refrain, to be sure, and as noted, it’s not the first time Gurley, who is currently playing under a four-year, $60 million (with $45 million of it guaranteed) has railed against the distinct discrepancies between NFL and NBA deals.

It merits noting that a movement toward NFL players receiving more guaranteed money in their contracts is in the offing, as illustrated by Gurley’s deal with the Los Angeles Rams.

Still, when Tobias Harris is set to net $180 million guaranteed for five years while Gurley will play four seasons for $45 million guaranteed and $60 million total, it’s no surprise NFL stars are left somewhat bitter.
