Top 10 average NFL QB salaries after Kyler Murray’s deal


Kyler Murray’s latest take care of the Arizona Cardinals puts him in some very elite company within the NFL and incredibly high in a single category particularly.

With regards to contracts within the NFL, there are a lot of aspects that you have to consider. How much of the cash is guaranteed, how long is the contract for, are there any ‘voidable years’, does the team have the choice to increase it in the event that they desire, what’s the general value, are there any bonuses, the list goes on.

All this stuff have to be considered when a team offers a player a latest deal, to ensure that they aren’t going to be hamstrung and held back by anything, and at the identical time the player must ensure that they’re getting a good deal relative to their skillset.

The newest to undergo that were the Arizona Cardinals as they handed out a latest deal to their sparkling young quarterback Kyler Murray that sees him under contract until 2028 and can see him earn $230.5m if he sees it through to completion, $150m of which is guaranteed. 

Those are only two of the large numbers that we’d like to concern ourselves with, but if you break it down on a yearly basis, it by some means makes it all of the more staggering to see how much he’s paid, as he is about to receive just shy of $50m a 12 months.

Now there are some minor things to think about, some years might see him paid more (for example in the event that they wish to front-load it from time to time see it diminish in order that they’ve more room to draw free agents in the longer term), but with regards to his yearly average, he currently sits #2 with regards to quarterbacks and their average annual salary.

But who fills out the highest ten? That’s what we wanted to search out out, so we went to SpotRac and compiled the list of the highest ten highest paid signal-callers based on what they may average on a yearly basis:

When you concentrate on that just 4 of the highest ten have won a Super Bowl at this stage of their profession, it really does drive home the purpose that paying in your quarterback is likely to be one thing, but if you happen to pay an excessive amount of and don’t surround him with the talent to make it work, then that cash might as well be taking place the drain.
