10 Highest-Paid NFL Players of 2019

While the NFL does not offer guaranteed big-money contracts like the NBA, the salaries of the players are increasing dramatically over the years. 

From quarterbacks to defensive players, here are the players that the NFL teams are paying handsomely this 2019.

The figures are based on NFL.com.

#10 Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints, QB ($25 million)

Brees inked a two-year contract with the Saints in 2018. The franchise is not expressing any desire to replace him anytime soon especially that he brought the Saints to the NFC championship in 2018. 

#9 Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders, QB ($25 million)

Carr signed with the Raiders for five years, under a $125 million deal. The last season was not a good one for Carr, but the starting QB’s new contract proved his value to the franchise. 

#8 Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions, QB ($27 million)

Stafford may not be the best QB, but he is the Lion’s best QB throughout its history. His salary is only fitting considering some of his record numbers in the NFL.

#7 Jimmy Garappolo, San Francisco 49ers, QB ($27.5 million)

While the 49ers are yet to prove that Garappolo has the makings of a franchise QB, he was already set to pocket $27.5 million this coming season. Garappolo signed the five-year contract with the team in 2018 despite his torn ACL injury.

#6 Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings, QB ($28 million)

Cousins played with the Washington Redskins for three seasons before finally landing the big-money contract with the Vikings. In 2018 offseason, he signed a fully-guaranteed contract. The $84 million three-year deal will expire in 2021, after which he would become a free agent.

#5 Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons, QB ($30 million)

Ryan signed a substantial five-year contract extension with the Falcons amounting to $150 million. His contract guarantees him $94.5 million.

#4 Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles, QB ($32 million)

Wentz has a bright future ahead of him. His contract with the Eagles has been extended to six years; it may have a total value of over $153 million spread out over five years. The Eagles management is also ready to hand him attractive incentives, bonuses, and other escalators every year until 2024.

#3 Aaron Rodgers, Green Back Packers, QB ($33.5 million)

Rodgers is the second-best QB, next to Tom Brady. Since the Packers struggled last season with the weakest players that failed to match Rodgers’s on-field skills, the team is expecting him to perform and deliver. The team works under the supervision of a new head coach. He was once the highest-paid QB when he signed the 2018 four-year extension with a guaranteed salary of more than $100 million.

#2 Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers, QB ($34 million)

Roethlisberger may not be the highest-paid player, nor he would become one because he is nearing retirement, but his earnings are nothing to sneeze at. The Steelers missed the playoffs. It doesn’t mean that the team would low-ball his contributions, awarding him with a massive contract extension until 2021. This would also mean that Roethlisberger is retiring as a Steeler.

#1 Russel Wilson, Seattle Seahawks, QB ($35 million)

Wilson is the highest-paid NFL player today with a $35 million guaranteed earning for the coming season. In April 2019, Wilson gave Seahawks a hard deadline—the midnight of April 28. The management took heed, not only extending his contract but also making him the highest-paid football player in NFL history.
