Besides having some online sports betting action, NFL mascots play an integral role in the live viewing experience at a game, but a question many people wonder about is how much they make per year.

Whether it’s Billy Buffalo, Roary, Freddie Falcon, or Blue, there are plenty of unique mascot presences surrounding the NFL. These talented, athletic humans enhance the in-stadium atmosphere, help create noise, and entertain while engaging with fans.

What’s even more interesting is that not every team in the league has one. The New York Jets, New York Giants, Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Chargers, and Washington Commanders all don’t currently have a mascot for 2022.

How Much Does an NFL Mascot Make?

Although there isn’t a set rate for each mascot in the NFL, the average mascot in 2022 reportedly makes $60,000 annually. Other leagues, such as MLB, the NHL, and the NBA, have different rates for how much annual income their mascots take home.

What the NFL mascots have going for them compared to the other sports is that they have a much shorter regular season schedule and don’t tend to travel for road games.
