Nine AFL players earned $1 million in 2019, with two surpassing $1.2 million.
While player salaries aren’t publicly accessible, Dustin Martin, Nathan Fyfe and Lance Franklin are three players known to be in the bracket.
Jeremy Cameron, Jeremy McGovern, Josh Kelly, Scott Pendlebury, Patrick Dangerfield, Andrew Gaff, Patrick Cripps, Jared Polec and Marcus Bontempelli are among the other contenders to be around the mark.
Numbers released by the AFL also suggest one player who did not play in 2019 earned seven figures, with the leading candidates being either Tom Mitchell or Tom Boyd.
Looking to the future, Toby Greene and Stephen Coniglio will likely break into the $1 million club given their new contracts, while Carlton recruit Jack Martin’s heavily front-loaded deal will see him go close in 2020.
Down the other end, 31 players earned between $60,000 and $100,000 in 2019. No player earned less than $60,000.
