How Much College Quarterbacks Are Worth - Tuesday, May 20, 2014 10:23 PM

That’s a fraught calculation, but not an impossible one. Let’s use college football quarterbacks as our case study. With the advent of advanced analytics and public disclosures about universities’ athletic department income, we can begin to approximate what each quarterback is worth to his university. Heisman Trophy-winner Jameis Winston of Florida State University, for example, is worth an estimated $3 million more than the average college quarterback. In his time at Stanford University, Andrew Luck was worth even more.

I wonder how much denard was valued at.
It was an impressive achievement, of course, and a human achievement by the members of the IBM team, but Deep Blue was only intelligent the way your programmable alarm clock is intelligent.. -Kasparov

I wonder if this were ever to come into play, paying on value. If past qbs etc, could comeback and asked to be paid for the value of their previous play time?
