It pays to be an NFL quarterback. With Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott looking for a bigger payday from team owner Jerry Jones, we thought we’d look at the ten highest-paying contracts in the league (based on yearly average). A few of the names on this list surprised us. Ryan Tannehill? Jared Goff? Of note, Tom Brady didn’t make the cut. (He’s currently tied at No. 12 at $25 million.) Neither did Patrick Mahomes or Lamar Jackson, although you just know they’ll be at the very top of the list in another year or two. The NFL’s highest-paid non-QB? That would be Chicago DE/LB Khalil Mack (23.5 million).
