Who are the highest-paid players in the NFL in 2023? These are the biggest contracts
Entering the NFL free agency, we look at the league’s top earners and what their contracts are worth.
Quarterbacks dominate the league’s biggest contracts. This tells us the importance that teams give the position over others. It doesn’t mean teams can’t win without a star QB. It just means that teams think it is easier if you have more talent in this position rather than others.
This year the NFL will have a big influx of money thanks to new television contracts worth more than $100 billion. The sky is the limit in this 2023 free agency. So look out for upcoming contracts that can top the list we have prepared for you.
But who are the highest-paid players in the NFL?
Eleven quarterbacks will be among the twelve highest-paid NFL players in 2023. Of those earning over $20 million annually, thirteen are also quarterbacks. Special mention to DL Aaron Donald, who is the first non-QB to make the list.
