Reported Skip Bayless Salary Would Pay Him More Than No. 1 NFL Draft Pick


Skip Bayless is leaving ESPN. Widespread speculation has him rejoining Jamie Horowitz at Fox Sports.

SI reported that Bayless’ next contract would pay him in the neighborhood of $26 million over four years, including a $4 million signing bonus. (FOX Sports declined to comment on Skip Bayless, speculative reports about a deal, and the terms of such a deal.)

If those numbers are accurate, Bayless would earn more talking about Jared Goff the next four years than…Jared Goff. Gross wages for the Rams’ No. 1 pick would top out at $25.4 million.

Speculatively speaking, it does not seem like a bad time to be Skip Bayless.
