Ahead of the Divisional playoff round game this weekend between the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys at the Levi’s Stadium, we’e comparing the value of each squad. 

The 49ers have been one of the best teams in the NFL this season, boasting a 13-4 record in the NFC, and they beat the Seattle Seahawks 41-23 in the Wild Card round last weekend.

Meanwhile Dallas had a decent season themselves too, with a record of 12-5. They also progressed into the Divisional round in style after beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-14, in a game that could be remembered as Tom Brady‘s last ever.

The two teams met last in the Wild Card playoff round back in January 2022, and the 49ers won 23-17 at the AT&T Stadium.

There’s a lot of different components that add up the squad value of a Franchise, and we’re going to compare the two now including salaries etc.

According to Spotrac, the San Francisco 49ers wage bill comes out at $207,434,978 in active contracts with seven players on the roster earning more than the average NFL wage of $10 million a year.

  1. LT – Trent Williams ($19.4m)
  2. DE – Arik Armstead ($15.9m)
  3. ILB – Fred Warner ($12.9m)
  4. TE – George Kittle ($11.65m)
  5. DE – Nick Bosa ($17.86m)
  6. CB – Charvarius Ward ($13.56m)
  7. RB – Christian McCaffrey ($11.8m)

The 49ers active roster includes 35 players, adding up to the total wages cost of around $207 million, and rookie contracts such as star QB Brock Purdy bring the cost down, while still making up the value on the field.

Spotrac estimates that the C0wboys wage bill comes in at around $7 million more than the 49ers, with their active contracts coming in at $214.1 million, and there’s come big money deals in there, with six players on the roster having a contract bigger than the average salary in the NFL.

  2. DE – DeMarcus Lawrence ($15m)
  3. G – Zack Martin ($13.5m)
  4. LT – Tyron Smith ($13.6m)
  5. RB – Ezekiel Elliot ($10.9m)
  6. WR – Michael Gallup ($11m)

The Cowboys have a bigger wage bill than the 49ers, and that’s down to a couple of things; They have a lot more money, they’ve a bigger active roster by 8 (43), and they also have star QB Dak Prescott in their ranks, who’s on almost triple the amount of money as some of the other higher earners in the franchise.
