Players get 17 checks for salary each year, 16 games and the bye week. So in Florida, you would get 9 checks without state income tax. Any bonuses earned are paid as income in the state that the team is located, so that's a big chunk of change.
The best teams in the league to avoid state income taxes are Houston, Tennessee and Jacksonville because 3 of their 4 division teams play in states that do not have state income tax. So you know least 11 of your 17 paychecks will not have state income taxes applied.
