A world-class violinist (say, Itzhak Perlman) can make well more than that. Consider that a weekend engagement will usually start around $50k for three days. More for a solo performance. Plus taking care of travel and amenities.

One weekend engagement a month for a year will yeild more than many NFL players.
Why you feel the need to compare a world class violinist with a rookie NLF player?
Your rookie violinist will probably not make ends meet without the support from family.
Can you make a point without needing to stretch facts?
