NFL to pay replacement refs for Week 4

The replacement refs have been replaced but the NFL is still paying them, according to a report confirmed by NFL.com. 

According to the report, 112 replacement refs will receive either $3,500 or $3,000, depending on whether they were a referee or a sideline official.

The refs worked the first three weeks of the NFL season but the league and the referees association came to terms on a new contract days before Week 4 was set to begin.

The news was first reported by our own Peter King.
