THE PROFESSOR'S CHALLENGE
As we approach the start of the NFL season, the Professor thought that a sports related finance question was appropriate.
Suppose a 1st round NFL quarterback for the NY Jets signs a 3 year, $25 million contract. Terms of the contract call for an immediate $2 million bonus followed by $5 million, $8 million and then $10 million payable at the end of each of the three years. Assuming a 15% discount rate, is the quarterback’s total contract worth $25 million? If not, how much is it worth? First correct answer emailed will receive a complimentary admission to one of MAREJ sponsored conferences in New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Delaware!
