TI have National Football League (NFL) is one of the wealthiest sports divisions in the world.
The best players in the league each year are bound by multi-million dollar contracts with the teams they represent.
Who are the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL right now?
Aaron Rogers earns the most money among quarterbacks in the NFL. 38-year-old man devoted himself Green Bay Packers in March with a three-year contract extension worth over $150 million. He averages over $50 million per season. One by one, the NFL MVP is not only the highest paid quarterback, but also the highest paid player in the entire NFL.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the deal also has two placeholders for end cap purposes, which are subject to change at that time.
In 2022, Rogers was projected to receive a base salary of $26.47 million and a salary cap of $46.664 million. The new deal raises his salary this season while lowering the cap.
The Packers quarterback will earn $42 million in 2022, $59.515 million in 2023 and $49.3 million in 2024, bringing his three-year total to $150.815 million, Pelissero said.
Kyler Murray, Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes also play
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport, Kyler Murray signed a five-year deal on July 21, 2022 for a total of $230.5 million. The agreement guarantees $160 million and commits the Cardinals quarterback to play in Arizona until 2028.
After the Texans moved to the Browns, Watson signed a five-year, $230 million contract. Given the uncertainty surrounding Deshawn Watson’s legal position at the time of the transaction, the completeness of his contract, which was carefully reviewed at the time of the transaction, is guaranteed.
The total value of Patrick Mahomes’ contract, if he satisfies all his incentives, was $502,631 million over the 12 years he signed in September 2020.
His base contract, which covers the last two seasons before the extension goes into effect, is $477.631 million, or $39.8 million a year. In 2022, Mahomes will start earning an average of $45 million a year.
