A little surprising that the Skins only have 1 player on that entire list which shows the top 10 player earnings for every position.

I cannot believe Warrick Dunn makes more money, more cap charge, than Brian Westbrook. He had better take a pay cut!

Dewayne Robertson, New York Jets: $9,417,760

John Henderson, Jacksonville: $6,836,500

Jamal Williams, San Diego: $6,650,000
ugh...

Robertson is also set to make the second most money amongst all defensive players. trailing the DPOY by about 50k

Really interesting stuff...Dwayne Robertson makes almost three million more per year than any other DT in the league.

Not horrible, Strahan is to be expected, Toomer is a canidate to restructure, Shockey is the 3rd highest paid for arguably the 3rd best TE.

Dan Morgan is getting paid more than Urlacher, now that just ain't right. And according to this, RMJ is the highest paid player on our defense. :shock: :lol:

Ah you gotta love the NFL sometimes. Btw, how is Rod Smith getting 7 mil per year? :shock:

Olin Kreutz is arguably the best center in the league, but NO center deserves over $10 Mil a year. No lineman that isn't a LT should be paid that much, let alone a center.

sooo needs to be cut.

why isn't Ed Reed on the list for Safeties?

02-20-2007, 05:48 PM
the thing that sticks out to me (prolly cuz i am steelers fan) but troy p. isn't in the top 10 when only 2 of the safties in the top 10 or even on the same level as him ( b-dawk and sean taylor)

How is Adam Vinnateri not on the list for kickers?

Because he is in the first year of a contract. The first year on any contract most likely has the smallest base salary of any year. A lot of time it is close to the NFL minimum, but players don't mind because they get all of their multi million dollar signing bonus that same year. It jumps up significantly by year 3 most times.

This is also the same reason Amani Toomer is in the top 10 of WRs. He is in his second to last year of his multi year contract. His base salary figure is high. He is a prime candidate to restructure.

I'm going to put this in bold so people notice.

This list is how much these players made this year, not the average amount they make every year, or how much they count against the cap

Therefore, while Olin Kruetz made 10 million this year, that's because he signed a contract extension during the season that gave him a large signing bonus. He is by no means the #2 best paid offensive lineman in the NFL.

He's good, but not a top 5 DT.

It's not the average amount, but it is (roughly) how much they count against the cap.

In the NFL, the top-paid players by position set the rates for franchise and transition players. The earnings for each player represent salary and prorated signing bonus for 2006.

Like it's been said, Grant was in the last year of his contract and isn't going to be resigned anyways.

:lol: So Brady made $3 million more than Manning. I thought Brady was the unselfish team player and Manning the selfish glory hog statboy?

That's because his base salary was only around $1 million in the first three years of the contract with huge $9-10 million roster bonuses. This year, his cap hit jumps up to around $17 million. That's why he's expected to restructure and convert all of that added salary to signing bonus, prorating most of the cap hit over the life of the contract.

My basic point was to laugh at all the Brady fanboys. I'm not saying anything negative about Brady here.

Oh, I understand. Prisco actually did an article on both contracts after they signed him, and their salary cap hit is pretty much the same throughout their contracts.

Barry Sims has to be the most overpaid. To my knowledge, he's not even playing anymore. He wasn't even a starter last year. Gallery was at LT (bust *cough* *cough*) and Langston Walker.

It's about how much they made this year. That includes signing bonuses or roster bonuses. Therefore, if a player just signed a contract with an upfront signing bonus, or just hit a roster bonus which constituted a large % of their contract, it's going to seem like their contract is worth a lot more than it is.

Therefore, statements like

"So and so mediocre player is the 5th best player kicker in the NFL!?!?"

are really incorect because the remainder of their contract could just as well pay them around the average for their position.

The title is somewhat misleading in that regard, and in regards to the signing bonus the previous poster was partially incorrect. A player can have a 10 million dollar signing bonus which he gets paid to him all in one season but the cap hit can be prorated over the length of the contract.

Samari Rolle, Baltimore: $5,200,000

Rashean Mathis, Jacksonville: $5,134,000

ludicrous...his play this past year was barely worth the league minimum

and he's on par with rashean mathis, who is easily one of the top 5, maybe top 3 corners in the game?

something needs to be done because we can't go into next season paying 5 million bucks to one of the worst starters in the league.

this list is innaccurate don't pay attention to it

Terrell Owens, Dallas: $6,666,666

is incorrect he makes around 8

Ed reed would be on there

Jason witten would be on there Andre Guroude

Tomlinson doesn't make 6 a year

Because Ed Reed is still near the beginning of his contract most of the guys on this list are about half way through or more. Thats when the big bucks start rollin in.

Fred Taylor isnt worth that anymore in my opinion.

Kyle Brady is good but not worth top 5 money.

Pretty interesting, I know several of those are high because they are front-loaded, Ryan Pickett, Charles Woodson are two. I think Olin Kreutz is so high because he just got a new deal so they added some money onto this past year's cap.
