As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FOXBUSINESS.COM:
Chance Warmack, an offensive lineman for the Philadelphia Eagles, will reportedly be the first NFL player to collect on a loss-of-value insurance policy.
A loss-of-value policy pays athletes if their future salary doesn’t meet a predetermined threshold. These policies are often purchased by college athletes to protect against injuries, usually in the year before the draft, according to the NCAA’s website.
The article goes on to state the following:
Warmack took out insurance that would kick in if his second NFL contract paid less than $20 million, according to an ESPN report. The 26-year-old, who was drafted 10th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans, signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Eagles last year.
ESPN reported Thursday that Lloyd’s of London informed Warmack this week that he will receive the maximum payout of about $3 million.
