Best Answer

Players were generally paid $75-$100 per game during the 1920s. Red Grange was the star of football during that time. It was reported that he asked George Halas, owner of the Chicago Bears, for a 'five figure salary' for the 1926 season. He was refused and with the help of his manager started a new football league in 1926 that lasted one season. It would be safe to say that nobody in the NFL made more than a couple thousand dollars tops during the 1920s.
