10 Highest-Paid Quarterbacks, In Terms Of Per Season Salary
The NFL season is an open question at this time due to the ongoing pandemic that is the coronavirus. But! We hope that if we all stay at home and continue to wash our hands well, the NFL (and NBA, and MLB and NHL) season will go as planned. With Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs prepare to defend their Super Bowl title, the teams sprinkled their I and crossed their T on all the new contract offers for their players and in particular their quarterbacks. After all, you can’t have a football team without a quarterback! The 34 quarters of the NFL earn at least $ 5 million in average wages. Twenty of these quarters earn at least $ 10 million each season. Nineteen quarters earn at least $ 20 million. Ten of them earn at least $ 25 million a season. Six make at least $ 30 million on average each season.
One, the Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson, is not only the highest-paid quarterback, but he is also the highest-paid NFL player with $ 35 million per season. Wilson and the Seahawks recently signed a $ 140 million, four-year contract with a signing bonus of $ 65 million. Just behind Wilson is Ben Roethlisberger of Pittsburgh with an average annual salary of $ 34 million. Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay and Jared Goff of the Rams are tied for third with $ 33.5 million in average annual salary.
