Battle becomes highest paid NFL practice player

Former Clemson offensive lineman Isaiah Battle was given a $25,588 per week raise according to ESPN's Field Yates.

Battle was waived back in early September, but the Rams were able to keep him in the organization because he was not picked up by another team.

The raise makes Battle the highest paid practice player in the NFL and explains why the Rams might have been able to sign him to their practice roster. The base rate of an NFL practice player is $6,600 a week.

He was selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft on July 9th. He was the first player chosen in the supplemental draft since 2012 (WR Josh Gordon).

The Rams had to forfeit their team's 2016 NFL 5th round pick for selecting Battle.

Official Clemson Bio: - Junior, who is one of the team's most athletic offensive linemen, ... has 32 knockdowns in 1,336 snaps over 27 games (15 starts) in his career ... had a significant role in each of Clemson’s wins over top-25 teams in bowl games in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
