"This is a very detailed report, released by the league, of just what the players made in 2020. Wages and bonuses and buyouts and even information, if implied, of the value of non-wage benefits such as health insurance. It’s a remarkable amount of data on what teams are investing in the players. It’s also not unusual to get this; the league releases this information pretty much every year around this time. The teams tell you what the players have earned, every single year."
